Scots band, Texas have released the music video for their new single, Mr Haze, which features Gladiator and Braveheart actor, Tommy Flanagan.

The video follows the announcement of the band’s new album, Hi, last week.

Mr Haze is driven by a sample of Donna Summer’s song, Love’s Unkind, and is the second song to be taken from Hi – the band’s tenth album – out May 28 on BMG.

Directed by award-winning Scot, Simone Smith and filmed in Glasgow, the video features psychedelic undertones and sees Texas’s lead singer, Sharleen Spiteri and Tommy Flanagan dancing against a sun-drenched backdrop.

Friends with Flanagan since childhood, Spiteri said: “It’s so great to be working with my old friend and now Hollywood star Tommy Flanagan, we met at 14 years old and will always be that age to me.”

 

Three of the songs on Hi were written in lockdown, in Scotland, Wales, LA and Sweden.

“Our excitement at finding this treasure trove of songs collided with our excitement back then and, unplanned, new songs started coming,” said Spiteri.

“You could say we were inspired by ourselves!”

Texas have also announced they will be touring in the UK and Ireland throughout February and March 2022, playing at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro on Friday, March 4.
