Blur’s Alex James debuted this week as a filmmaker with the release of his first short film called ‘A Slice of Life‘. It was filmed in Los Angeles during the weekend he performed at Coachella.

The short film also features a new song called “Superordinator“.

“Like everything else, it starts with an idea and as music is so much part of my life, it quickly became the focus of the short. I was in LA listening to the track on my headphones. The more I listened to it, the more it chimed with the sunshine and atmosphere of the city. So I decided to make a film about being carefree and happy, with a punchline that brings it all back to earth – the concept being life is short, but music endures. I really enjoyed the whole filmmaking process, it was very accessible and a lot of fun.” – James for NME
