The track featured on the pair's first collaborative album which came out earlier this year

Hannah Peel and Will Burns have shared a new video for their track 'The Night Life'. You can watch it above.

The song is lifted from the pair's first collaborative album, Chalk Hill Blue, which they released in March of this year. The video is directed by the BAFTA award-winning Kieran Evans, who was enlisted to create a series of videos for tracks from the album.

Speaking about working with Will Burns on the record, Hannah Peel said: "After only meeting Will at a few gigs before, we met at the studio to try out some ideas. Whenever he heard a sound or texture, he instinctively brought out a poem that he thought fitted the mood. It was like 'Tone Poetry'. Equally when he read a poem to us in the studio, we reacted straight away with sound… casting away apprehensions, creating an album live in the room instinctively, with no boundaries or expectations."

Chalk Hill Blue is out now. You can read tQ's review of the album here. The album will be performed live at Krankenhaus festival in Cumbria on September 8, London's Milton Court Concert Hall on October 26 and Barnsley's The Civic on November 1.
