Singer-Songwriter Ben Watt debuted the video for his latest single this week.

Watt debuted the video for his new single ‘Figures in the Landscape‘ Thursday.  The song is featured in Watt’s new album Storm Damage, which is scheduled for release Jan. 31 through Caroline Records.

The video for ‘Figures in the Landscape’ finds Watt and his fellow musicians performing the new single in a studio setting.  The whole thing is presented in black and white as a means to help illustrate the song’s message of dealing with very negative emotions and thoughts.

Watt discussed this concept in a recent interview.

“It’s a call to action in response to feelings of powerlessness,” he said of the song.  “I wrote it in a period of personal crisis and political upheaval.  The random nature of both can leave you feeling insignificant, lacking agency in the world, but in the end I guess you have a simple choice:  to get up and celebrate what you have, or get out and take issue with it.”

‘Figures in the Landscape’ is the third single to come from Storm Damage.  The forthcoming album has already spawned the singles ‘Balanced on a Wire‘ and ‘Irene.’  The album’s full track listing is noted below.
