Thurston Moore reveals video for "Speak To The Wild"

21 October 2014, 13:44 | Written by Laurence Day

Thurston Moore has unveiled the first video from his recent solo LP, The Best Day.

The clip for "Speak To The Wild" was directed by Santiago Mostyn, who has said of the video:

"My dad tells a story of when I first came to visit him in San Francisco. I was six, and living in rural Zimbabwe with my mother, and he had gotten together some cash to fly us over. Political circumstances had taken my parents in different directions when I was a baby and this would be my first time back to his city. On our first trip out to Golden Gate Park, my dad helped me onto a bicycle and smiled as I rode off. But I didn't stop where I was supposed to, and he describes seeing his wild-haired African son disappearing into the woods of this enormous park, followed by the sinking fear that he may have just lost me for good. For my part, I was happy, and have since spent large parts of my life building new realities in this realm of the lost."

The Best Day is out now on Matador.
