British singer-songwriter Ben Watt, formerly one-half of Everything But The Girl, is returning in a few months with his third solo album, Fever Dream, which features Suede’s Bernard Butler and some guest vocals from Marissa Nadler and Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor. He’s just shared a video for dusty lead single “Gradually,” which he described to The Guardian as “Pentangle meets Crazy Horse.” According to Watt, the song is “what can happen to a long ongoing relationship over time; the gradual shifting sands; how love mutates, changes speed; how interior worlds can be obstructive.” The video, shot in London’s backstreets and directed by John Jeanes, follows the story of a working girl who meets an artist. “John was working on the story of a misunderstanding in a short-term relationship,” Watt says. “He wondered if I had music that might fit. At the time, I was thinking about making a film for my song ‘Gradually,’ which looks at misunderstandings in a long-term relationship. I thought the intersection of the two ideas could be interesting.”
