It's been 31 years since Everything But The Girl frontman Ben Watt went out on his own with a solo studio album. Thanks to friend Mark Cousins, the acclaimed Irish critic and director of the 15-part revisionist film history epic "The Story of Film," the title track of Watt's new record "Hendra" now has a music video. Watch "Hendra," exclusive to Thompson on Hollywood!, below.

Following a treatment competition, the winning script came from across the pond, penned by British screenwriter Rahim Moledina, who also directed the video for "Hendra." Cousins and Watt supervised the filmmaking, which took place in East London on a shoestring budget. Cousins calls the video, inspired by Watt's lyrics about dreams of his late half-sister, a "mini-masterpiece."

See for yourself below. Ben Watt's new record "Hendra" arrives on April 29.
