Kasabian has unveiled their music video for “Ill Ray (The King),” starring Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister).
“Ill Ray (The King)” is taken from the Leicester band’s sixth album For Crying Out Loud, which topped the U.K. chart in May to become their fifth consecutive No. 1 album.
The new video, written and conceived by Serge Pizzorno, shows Headey performing a magic ritual to resurrect Richard III in a Leicester car park — referencing how the real Richard III’s skeleton was exhumed in a city council car park in Leicester, England in 2012. Headey then takes the late king on a trip through the city center, including a stop off at the pub. Check it out above.
The band recently headlined Reading and Leeds festivals for the second time, with guitarist Serge Pizzorno describing their set to NME as “like nuclear warfare.”
At the festivals, Pizzorno also told the BBC that he’d encouraged Noel Fielding to take his new job as co-presenter of The Great British Bake Off.
“We had a conversation,” he said. “It was funny, we just laughed. I was like, ‘Well, it’s an adventure isn’t it?’ It will enable him to do more insane stuff, which is what I like better than anything. If it means that he can just do that for the next 30 years, then that’s amazing.”
