Ricky Gervais’s iconic character from The Office has returned with a music video for his new folk single, “Lady Gypsy”.

As part of the promotion for David Brent: Life on the Road, the upcoming spinoff film for the hit BBC2 comedy, Gervais shared the video for the acoustic ballad this week.

In the video, Brent strums his guitar while sitting in a tree, before roaming around in a woodland and discovering a woman washing her hair in a lake.

As she lays him down on a bed of heather, he begins to wonder if his ‘lady gypsy’ is a sex worker.

“I said, ‘But to be clear then, the sex is free, yes?’ She said, ‘Yes the sex is free but the heather is a pound’,” Brent sings.

Fans can also pre-order the 15-track album from David Brent and his band Foregone Conclusion.

David Brent: Life on the Road will see a documentary crew following Brent’s pursuit of fame as he self-finances a UK tour.

The film will be released on August 19.
