Video of the Moment #2120: The Divine Comedy

Ahead of the release of the eleventh album from The Divine Comedy, ‘Foreverland’, due out in September, Neil Hannon has revealed the promo video for lead single ‘Catherine the Great’. In a style usual to Hannon, he takes what might be a serious topic – the longest-ruling leader of Russia and from all accounts, not altogether a bad ruler in the grand scheme of things – and provides a cheeky commentary on the life of the enlightened despot. Try not to guffaw out loud like I did when you watch the video below. On second thought, let it all out. We all need a laugh every now and again, don’t we?

‘Foreverland’ will be released on the 2nd of September on Divine Comedy Records. Details to previously announced tour dates are listed here. For more on the Divine Comedy on TGTF, check out our coverage of Neil Hannon’s doings here.
