Video: Adam Ant, ‘Cool Zombie’ — lead single off first new album in 18 years

When the world didn’t end in some kind of Mayan apocalypse last Friday, Adam Ant took the occasion to debut the music video for “Cool Zombie,” the lead single and opening track to his first new album in 18 years: Adam Ant Is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner’s Daughter, which arrives Jan. 22 on Ant’s own record label.

The clip, filmed in one day at Hoxton Hall in Shoreditch, East London, is a concept video telling “the story of Adam’s return to London after living in Tennessee” — where he apparently became a pirate. Check out the video above, and the full tracklist for Blueblack Hussar — Ant’s first album since 1995’s Wonderful — is listed below.

    Hmm…not sure what to think about this. A little Weird Al…

     
  • That’s quite good. Nice swagger.

    dude still has the moves! and i like this song, i can see buying this record.

    Are everything about this video & song horribly awful, or just plain old awful?

    I loved the Ants, back when. This is shiat.

     
  • Yes, he’s still got the moves and can still cut it ‘live’ (saw him at Manchester Ritz last month), tho’ this song steals from ‘Hey Joe’ big time! Hope Billy Roberts (or Trad. arr. Rose, depending on your preference) gets a song-writing credit!

    Nice song by Adam Ant. However, if i heard this on the radio and didn’t know it was Ant, i’d have to say that i would change the station within the first 20 seconds. And damn if it isn’t repetitive the whole way through. Why not make a record that sounds the way people remember him from?

     
  • uhh..no

    No wonder this has been shelved for a year. Boring! It’s a rip-off of Wonderful and he’s trying to sound like Bob Dylan. Never the less, I am Ant People and will buy the album. He’s Adam. Scorpio rising?

    I love the video very well done! I cannot wait for the album. Adam you amaze me all the time :)

    After listening several times, I really don’t get this. What is he trying to do? Doesn’t really seem like him. The vocals sound good but you can’t really hear then over the “twang” of the guitar so I never would have guessed its even him.

    I’d like to hear some of the other cuts on the record.

    VINCE TAYLOR IS A BETTER DEBUTE SONG TO COME OUT WITH,ADAM SANG IT ON HIS 2012 TOUR. WHY IS THE FIRST SONG TO COME OUT ON THIS NEW COMEBACK LP? TOTAL COUNTRY TWANG.
    thinking not so good.
    I love adam ant
    hee haw (not!)

    I really like it! I have waited 18 years and I am not disappointed!! Every time Adam comes back, he comes back as a new entity. Yes, it’s different for him, because HE is different!! Pre-ordered his new album, can’t wait!!
