Benjamin Clementine has just released the new video for his latest 6Music-supported single ‘Jupiter’, lifted from his critically acclaimed new album, I Tell A Fly.
Jupiter was inspired by a US visa describing him as an 'alien'. Says Benjamin; “Saying ‘Jupiter’ for me was like saying ‘Europa’, or ‘England’, or ‘Edmonton’. Wandering around in America, there was Trump and Clinton, there was the Orlando attack, the New Orleans attack - here I was thinking I was living in a safe place, but nothing was really safe anymore, or ever. It’s a poke at people being called aliens by some people, like we’re from another planet. I think we’re all forever aliens”.
