While gearing up for the release of Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2, which drops on October 18th, Foals have unveiled a new video for “The Runner.”
The Quentin Deronzier-directed clip sees frontman Yannis Philippakis fighting his Doppelgänger, who is played by Vincent Heneine, as they jump in and out of paintings. Opening up with Philippakis splitting in two, the cinematic clip is a unique visual for the gritty track. The video fits the tune perfectly, as “it’s a call to find a sense of purpose and perseverance despite the odds and despite the troubles we may find inside or outside ourselves,” Philippakis explains in a statement.
