Placebo's Surrounded By Spies

2021-11-19 by Fernando Alves STAFF | 13 Comments
English rockers Placebo have shared the music video for their new song 'Surrounded By Spies', taken from the band's upcoming 2022 album Never Let Me Go, due out March 25th. You can watch it below.



According to NME, Brian Molko said the inspiration for this song came after he discovered his neighbors were spying on him.

"I then began to ponder the countless ways in which our privacy has been eroded and stolen since the introduction of worldwide CCTV cameras that now employ racist facial recognition technologies; the rise of the internet and the cellphone, which has turned practically every user into a paparazzo and spectators in their own lives, and how we have mostly all offered up personal information to enormous multinationals whose sole intent is to exploit us", Brian said.

Never Let Me Go tracklist:
1. Forever Chemicals
2. Beautiful James
3. Hugz
4. Happy Birthday In The Sky
5. The Prodigal
6. Surrounded By Spies
7. Try Better Next Time
8. Sad White Reggae
9. Twin Demons
10. Chemtrails
11. This Is What You Wanted
12. Went Missing
13. Fix Yourself
