Jimmy Brown - 2nd Oct 2014

Simple Minds mark their return with new single Honest Town supported by a Giorgio Testi-directed promo, taken from their first album in five years, Big Music, released on November 3.

Giorgio does what he does best - creating a superbly crafted film from the band's performance of the song, placing the Minds in a large open space to capture their performance, beautifully lit by DP Patrick Meller.
