Villagers' new single, 'Cecilia & Her Selfhood' is available to download from the band's website. It follows on from the band's debut album, 'Becoming A Jackal', which was released through Domino Records (Arctic Monkeys; Franz Ferdinand; The Kills) in May 2010 to critical acclaim.
The video for Cecilia & Her Selfhood is a spellbinding animated short film that loosely follows the plot of the dark, yet haunting, song. It was animated by Adrian Merigeau, who is also known for his work with Tomm Moore, Jennifer Evans and Our Little Secrets.
