Jamie Lenman has unleashed a new video for 'Adamantium Rage'

Jamie Lenman has released a new video for 'Adamantium Rage'.

A cover of the theme music from 90s video game, Wolverine: Adamantium Rage, it's a cut from his recent album 'Shuffle'.

Jamie explains: "I’ve loved comics since I was very little and my first love was always batman, but when their excellent cartoon started in the 90s I became obsessed with the x-men, and wolverine was my favourite. I watched the show, I read the books and I played the games, which is where this theme is from.

"The little girl in the video is very much my younger self, it’s definitely autobiographical. As a kid you’re powerless, but these heroes gave you power. The x men said, ‘that power is inside of you, waiting to come out’. It was a wonderful feeling and I’ll always love them for it.

"We filmed it in my DOP’s home town, starring his daughter Flo. After some initial reluctance, she conquered her natural shyness and gave a stunning performance. Her dad says she hasn’t been the same since, and I’m sure the creators of those characters would be proud to know that they helped her find that power. She also managed to negotiate a twenty-pound acting fee, which is more than I’ve ever got for being in a music video!"

Watch 'Adamantium Rage' below, and catch Jamie on tour in the UK this November.
