tom waits / satisfied

You’ve heard some his tracks in films that he has contributed to, from The Diving Bell and the Butterfly to Jarhead as well as Fight Club. No?

OK, then you’ve seen this old chap acting in some movies such as Wristcutters or, more recently, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

And if you are a fan, you’ll be pleased to know that this timeless stalwart has this year released his 22nd album, the first in 7 years…

The new album, Bad As Me, written by Mr. Waits and his wife Kathleen, and has thus far received critical acclaim across the board.

Yesterday saw the release of a new single, following on from ‘Bad As Me‘ and ‘Back In The Crowd‘, entitled ‘Satisfied’, sees a tip of the hat from Waits to Mr. Jagger and Mr. Richards and an exclamation of finding ‘satisfaction before I’m gone’.  The intriguing black and white video below was directed by Jesse Dylan, who is also the man behind The Black Keys’ latest video for ‘Lonely Boy’.
