Bob Gallagher directs the beautiful video...

Villagers have shared moving new cut 'Fool' - tune in now.

The Irish project return later this year, with new album 'The Art Of Pretending To Swim' arriving on September 21st.

New song 'Fool' is a hopelessly romantic return, with Conor O'Brien's delivery truly tugging at the heartstrings.

Opening in sweeping, unforgettable style, Conor croons: “So here is my bleeding heart… Will you take the pain away?”

Bob Gallagher uses this as a launchpad for the full video, a twist on the traditional marriage vows. He comments:

“The video is a surreal take on a marriage proposal, which is the ultimate gambit in love. The scenario pushes how much Conor's character is willing to overlook his partner's shortcomings, and convince himself that everything is fine. You could call it foolishness but you could also consider it a kind of optimism, striving to see the best in a situation.”

Tune in now.
