“Things People Want” is a yearning love letter to an unobtainable everyday life that comes set inside four minutes of ultra-melodic, glistening synthetic soul. It is taken form Paul Draper’s first ever solo album – Spooky Action – which will be due out on August 11th. Spooky Action is Paul’s first collection of songs since Mansun’s posthumous 2004 release Kleptomania; a welcome return to form by the former frontman of one of the most iconic bands of the late ’90s/early ’00s.
A psychedelic new video for “Things People Want” is available to view now. The animated film was made by Dan W. Jacobs – a director who has previously made clips for acts as diverse as Metallica and Money.
