"Cry On My Guitar" is a glam rock song by English solo artist Miles Kane. It was released as a single from his third studio album, Coup De Grace (2018), on 27 July 2018.

Composition[edit | edit source]
"Cry On My Guitar" was written with fellow English rocker Jamie T, as was much of Coup De Grace. Musically, the song takes inspiration from 70s glam rock act T. Rex, sharing a similar riff and vibe to their hits Get It On, Telegram Sam, and Jason B. Sad. The lyrics hint at a ending of a brittle relationship, such is the theme of its accompanying album.
Music Video[edit | edit source]
The music video for "Cry On My Guitar" was released on 24 July 2018. The video was directed by Brook Linder and features Kane in a brawl with WWE wrestler Finn Balor. The video was inspired by a scene in the 1967 James Bond film Casino Royale. The video is shot in mostly black and white and opens with Kane being hunter down by Balor and chased into an apartment. After a viscous scuffle involving Kane being slammed on the floor and Balor punching his hand through a cabinet, Kane escapes to the hallway and pulls the fire alarm. Flashing lights are synced to a guitar solo, followed by Kane on a stretcher lip syncing over the middle eight. The video ends with a battered and bloody Kane on the streets of LA, highlighted by synths, all setting up the music video for Loaded.
