1000 Years

Album: Butterfly House (2010)
  • This is the first single from Butterfly House, the fifth full-length studio album by English indie rock band The Coral.
  • The music video was shot with a '70s California-style vibe showcasing an astronaut on a mission. The three-day shoot took place in Almeria, Spain, known as the "Spanish Hollywood" because of the spaghetti westerns shot there. It was directed by James Slater and was inspired by the films El Topo and Lucifer Rising. "He filmed it all on an old Super 8 camera. You have to send all the film off to America to get developed," explained frontman James Skelly to the NME.
