"Shock Collar" is the third single to be shared from Humanist, after "Ring of Truth" featuring Carl Hancock Rux, and John Robb collaboration "English Ghosts".

Discussing the collaboration, Gahan says, "It was a pleasure to be asked to be a part of Rob’s Humanist project. Mark Lanegan asked me, and I liked the idea immediately… It’s a beast! I went for the vocal, with the visual of driving fast on an empty highway… We shot the video over a couple of days in New York, and it all came together."

Marshall adds, "I’d been writing a lot of music at the time for the record, and I was really getting back into big guitar tracks again, and I had a song (which would eventually become "Shock Collar") that I felt could be a great single. It was something special when Dave said he would sing this. He’s achieved so much over the years, an incredible front man, with such a soaring voice and presence, but with no trademark tone of celebrity or ego whatsoever. Very humble, gentle and giving. When we shot the video, he worked extremely hard on the day, performing each take with total gusto and energy, which didn't let up throughout his performances."

Humanist is a project led by guitarist and producer Rob Marshall, and the debut album will feature collaborations with Mark Lanegan, Ron Sexsmith, Jim Jones, Ride's Mark Gardener, and others.

"Shock Collar" is out now. Humanist's Humanist album arrives Ignition Records on 21 February, and is available to pre-order now. Humanist will play London's The Lexington on 24 March. Find out more.
