I already love the Jamie XX produced track. It's pacey yet deceptively languorous at the same time. That Gil Scott-Heron sample....mhm!
The song burns with want and when the drums finally break and Scott-Heron's voice echoes over the pulsating beat - it's like release. It needed a vid that would do it justice and director Woodkid (Yoann Lemoine) didn't disappoint.

It's minimal, morose, monochromatic. Lemoine used a falling charred Drake, bull horns, a bull charging, bluejays taking flight, a shower of arrows and beautiful yak fish to tell the story. The vid starts with jagged snowy mountain landscapes but those eventually turn to charred soil. Very elemental. Very high concept.
