The Darkness have released the video for their new single Happiness, taken from the recently released new album Pinewood Smile, out now through Cooking Vinyl.
Happiness is a deliriously feel-good anthem which finds The Darkness embracing the romance of a glorious love song. The video is a spectacular piece of animation featuring Justin, Dan, Frankie and Rufus in a surreal underwater playground of mermaids, octopuses, speedos, seahorses and, erm, tigers.
Regarding the single Justin says, “‘Happiness’ is about seeing only the golden sand and overlooking the broken glass. Hearing the waves crash and filtering out the grotesque cries of mating gulls. Smelling the distant odour of fresh chips and ignoring the stench of nearby dog shit. Happiness is a choice. Choose The Darkness.”
The new single is the latest song to be taken from the album Pinewood Smile which entered the UK Album Chart at No.8, topping the Rock & Metal Chart and becoming the No.1 charting Independent Album on the week of release and No.17 on the Australian ARIA Chart.
Pinewood Smile showcases The Darkness on electrifying form, delivering some of the most sharp-witted, infectious and downright brilliant songs of their career, which has been greeted by rave reviews.
