Plan B returned to the spotlight this week with his brand new single ‘In The Name Of Man’, taken from his upcoming fourth studio album and premiering last night (May 17) as the ‘Hottest Record’ on Mistajam’s show. Now, the musician has released an extensive new video taking fans behind-the-scenes of the making of the single and the music video for the track. Check out that film below:
The video for the song sees Plan B collaborate with Flabbergast Theatre, after finding inspiration in their life-like and innovative use of puppetry, where they use tiny movements to convey bold emotions.
Speaking about the music video, Plan B said: “The only power we have as artists is to create a catalyst that sparks a conversation on a wider scale, and I know the media already do that, but they so often do it in a way that caters to the political views of an intended audience. Whereas art comments on these issues from a more sincere point of view, with its only agenda being to make you feel some emotion from the information it’s conveying to you. In essence, connect with your heart, not just your head. The more music, film and literature there is out there that appeals to better nature of our humanity, and makes us think about our actions, the better informed we’ll be when we find ourselves in situations where we have a moral choice to make, and hopefully, help us make the right one.”
The song comes ahead of Plan B’s upcoming performance at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Hull, where he’ll headline the Where It Begins stage on Saturday, May 27. He also promises fans that he has some special events in place for the summer, but no details have yet been given as to what they may be.
‘In The Name Of Man’ is available now to stream and download.
