Ben Wheatley directs new Editors video “Formaldehyde”

“Formaldehyde” is the new single from Editors fourth studio album “The Weight Of Your Love”. The video was directed by Ben Wheatley, the award winning director of “Kill List”, “Sightseers” and, most recently, “A Field in England”. “Formaldehyde” marks Wheatley’s first music video. It was shot in Almeria, Southern Spain, to a script created and overseen by Wheatley that features his trademark blend of horror, suspense and surrealism in a homage to the great Spaghetti Westerns of the 60’s and in his words ‘a modern version of Jodorosky’s El Topo’, using the same film sets as those once occupied by Leone and Eastwood.
