The video was unveiled earlier this week.
British three-piece London Grammar have just unveiled a stunning video for their latest single 'Big Picture'; the second release from their hugely anticipated forthcoming sophomore album which is yet to be named. Plus, you'll be able to catch them live on the festival circuit this summer where they'll no doubt unleash some other new gems.
London Grammar release new single 'Big Picture'
Directed by Sophie Muller, the new video shows the band members performing in a glorious desert between glimpses of a starry sky and a moonlit landscape, with an overlay of northern lights and galactical imagery. Mercury Prize nominated electronic artist Jon Hopkins (who has previously worked alongside Brian Eno, Coldplay and David Holmes) helped produce 'Big Picture', an ambient number which was released yesterday (February 1st 2017).

The trip-hop trio were the stars of the Ivor Novellos, after having being ignored at the Mercury Music Prize.
London Grammar lead the honours at last night's 59th annual Ivor Novello awards in London. The trip-hop trio, Dominic Major, Hannah Reid and Daniel Rothman, won Best Song Musically and Lyrically for their track 'Strong.' The award was significant for the band, who met each other at Nottingham University, because it demonstrates a change of fortune when compared to them being ignored at the Mercury Music Prize.
London Grammar Proved Their Worth At The 59th Ivor Novello Awards.
Speaking before the show, vocalist Reid said of the awards: "It feels really good because it's a songwriter's award and that's why we do what we do, it's a little more chilled than the BRITs as well, it's great."

London Grammar are up for a prestigious Ivor Novello
Last year, the bookies had London Grammar as the 6/4 massive favourites to win the Mercury Music Prize, even before the nominations had been announced. And so it raised a few eyebrows when the London group's album If You Wait was left off the shortlist completely.
The band failed to hide their obvious disappointment when we quizzed them on the snub at Festival No.6.

Bastille won the BRIT for Best Breakthrough Act, but should London Grammar have taken home the gong?
Bastille may have walked away with the BRIT Award for Best British Breakthrough Act, but were they the most deserving winners of the gong? Their 2013 debut album ‘Bad Blood’ did reach number one in the UK music chart, but so did Eughan Quigg’s self-titled album in 2009. We’re definitely joking here, Bastille is in no way comparable to Eughan (no disrespect, Eughan), but number ones have been misleading indicators of quality music in the past!
Bastille brought home the BRIT at last Wednesday's awards
Bastille have produced some catchy and very popular tracks over the past couple of years and are certainly owed some recognition for this. They’re talented musicians who we envisage having the long lifeline of super band, Arctic Monkeys, especially since ‘Bad Blood’ has returned to the number one spot since their BRIT win. The problem is the deflated feeling we’ve had since they bagged the award. Not because Bastille didn‘t deserve to win, but because there was another act in the running who really blew us away in 2013.

The first names for SXSW have been released.
The South by Southwest Music Festival has released its first list of artists for the 2014 festival, notably the New Orleans rapper Vockah Redu, indie-trio London Grammar, Drenge, the Texas country singer Rodney Crowell and Swedish rock band INVSN.
The first batch comprises of 183 acts from 27 countries that will play in downtown Austin in the spring. Last year, more than 25,000 people saw 2,278 acts at the six-day festival and music conference.
INVSN is perhaps the most interesting act from the first announcement. Featuring Refused and International Noise Conspiracy frontman Dennis Lyxzen, the band are currently on a U.S tour promoting their self-titled debut album.

London Grammar are yet to comment on Radio 1's weird tweet.
If for some reason you were still searching for that reason to stop listening to Radio 1, than the good people at the BBC have just handed it to you on a plate.
The station has apologised for a tweet asking listeners if they thought London Grammar front-woman Hannah Reid is "fit."
Officials at Radio 1 deleted the original message after it was retweeted hundreds of times and received a wave of criticism and ridicule.
