First look at video for new single Too Bad (That's Sad)

Edwyn Collins is set to release a new single, 'Too Bad (That's Sad)', taken from his recent Understated album, on July 8 via his AED label and we've got a first spin of the video, directed by Kieran Evans, the man behind Saint Etienne's Finisterre - have a watch above.

The track's a choice cut from the album, Collins' eighth solo release, with our review calling it: "Motown soul [...] with its George Harrison slide guitar solo and pounding tambourines [the track] is lush and uplifting, its titular refrain crystallising Collins' modest understatement on his own situation."

Read our interview with Collins, Grace Maxwell and James Endeacott about AED and pre-order the single at the label's website.
