A few months ago, we had profiled Andrew Keoghan‘s spectacular debut album, Arctic Tales Divide, which was named the New Zealand Herald’s album of the year in 2011. Since then, Keoghan has established residence in Brooklyn (although he still returns to Auckland) and has been working on his highly anticipated second album. After reworking the album, Keoghan has released the first single, “Better Company” and its accompanying video.
Filmed on the island of Hawaii (better known as Big Island) and directed by Kris Moyes (Beck, Grizzly Bear), the video sees Keoghan in different states of dress and undress. The song, itself, has Keoghan retaining the orchestral-pop arrangements that he perfected on his debut album, although there is more of a euphoric pop feel in the new single. It echoes of Andrew Bird’s early work but with more flair for the dramatic.
Enjoy the video and song below. It’ll probably leave a smile on your face like it did for me. You can also download the single for free on Keoghan’s Soundcloud page (click here).
Every Orchid Offering, the name of Keoghan’s sophomore album, is expected out in March.
