Jack Valero has released his new single Form Over Function ahead of a run of dates including Manchester gig at The Castle.

The former RPMs frontman is following up his first two solo singles Heaven Help Me and Hollow Warmth.

The new track finds Jack Valero taking on a love that never was.  It also completes the video trilogy started with the first two singles.  While those visuals found Jack portraying characters wedged between isolation and eccentricity, this new clip takes a different approach. Jack plays himself, a young man who reacts to the song’s tale of heartbreak by retreating away from the world.

Speaking about the video Jack Valero said, “The final video in the trilogy explores the juxtaposition between the person and the performer in all of us and revisits some favourite characters. The last two videos have given the feeling of peering into a character’s most private moments, seeing their fears and anxieties. You can never know what bubbles away beneath the surface of someone and so here we blur the line between the character and showing my own vulnerabilities. I’ve talked about mental health before, but never gone too much into my own struggle with it. This video is the first time I tap into that without the safety net of a character to hide behind.”
