George Ezra has released the music video for his new single, ‘Listen To The Man’. However, in it, the song is not solely his; he is somewhat overshadowed by the presence of the one and only Ian McKellen.
Acting royalty McKellen rather steals the scene, enjoying a cocktail during some mid-song squabbling. However, differences are resolved and the two work in partnership to ‘sing’ the song – with some fantastic lip-syncing – and sway in time in front of a quaint bus stop background to produce a heartwarming scene, belying the lyrics of the song.
‘Listen To The Man’ is the latest single release from Ezra’s debut studio album, Wanted on Voyage, released 19th May earlier this year. Critically acclaimed, this music video is just the latest of Ezra’s successes, whose unique baritone has won him many fans since his debut at Glastonbury 2013 and subsequent success of his single ‘Budapest‘. Hopefully this success will continue, and his gentle natured stylings will keep listeners warm this coming winter.
Ezra recently released a series of sold-out UK tour dates for February 2015.
‘Listen To The Man’ is available now through Sony Music Entertainment. Watch the music video below.
