Blink-182 has released alternate videos for their song “Home Is Such a Lonely Place,” and bassist-vocalist Mark Hoppus gets some major screen time in one of the new versions. (WATCH IT BELOW.)
The first video for the acoustic ballad was released last month and features home videos of the band members hanging out with their families getting ready for a tour as well as some concert scenes. While some of the footage from the original remain in the new ones, we also get a closer look at the lives of Hoppus and guitarist-vocalist Matt Skiba, who are each the focus of their own video.
Director Jason Goldwatch made the videos by spending a day with each of the Blink-182 bandmates and capturing their private moments. The song “Home Is Such a Lonely Place” appears on the group’s 2016 album, California.
In an interview with NME, Hoppus said he was stoked about the videos.
“The sentiment and emotional immediacy of the song itself are reflected in the director Jason Goldwatch’s interpretation,” he said. “It’s the most honest video we’ve ever made, because it’s us being ourselves with our families.”
Blink-182 is currently touring the U.K. with Frank Turner and the Front Bottoms. Their tour began yesterday (July 5) in Leeds and will wrap up July 20 in London.
