The Darkness have released the official music video for the song “Happiness.” The clip was created by Vitamin Pictures in Chicago, Illinois and was directed by Daniel DelPurgatorio.
Said The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins: “‘Happiness’ is about seeing only the golden sand and overlooking the broken glass. Hearing the waves crash and filtering out the grotesque cries of mating gulls. Smelling the distant odor of fresh chips and ignoring the stench of nearby dog shit. Happiness is a choice. Choose The Darkness.”
“Happiness” is taken from The Darkness’s latest album, Pinewood Smile, which came out on October 6. The disc finds The Darkness on electrifying form, delivering some of the most sharp-witted, infectious and downright brilliant songs of their career, and was greeted with rave reviews, including four stars in issues of Q, Planet Rock and Mojo magazines.
