Neil Finn and son Liam have unveiled a video for Back to Life, the first single from their forthcoming Lightsleeper album.

The tribute to Greek mythology was filmed in Los Angeles and directed by Kristofski, and is a total friends ‘n’ family affair.

“We spent three hours on a Sunday afternoon dressing up and posing with some of our friends, mere mortals applying the greasepaint to escape our earthly chains,” said Neil and Liam.

“Behold, a little piece of theatre representing the way we try to summon up the gods of our songs, like Orpheus – challenging them to bring life to those loved ones who have departed. But alas, the gods seem listless and unconcerned, trapped in their own cycles of drama and intrigue.”

OK then.

Lightsleeper is heading for an August 24 release.
