Of the video, director Ali Kurr says:
“The track has so much pent up energy bottled inside it, and so when we came to make a film I wanted to harness that sentiment. Shooting in the disused building site reflected this tone, as it’s a space with so much potential that failed to be realised. The act of burning it down resulted in a sort of melancholic euphoria, this latent site was suddenly packed with scorching energy whilst simultaneously crumbling away.”

“There is no shortage of musical tributes when an artist with a shadow like Prince passes away,” says Dailey. “Music tributes are cathartic to all of us left behind. But I was stunned to learn of all the efforts Prince made in his community. That is also his legacy and while his songs will find spins, radio airwaves and clubs for the rest of time. I feel more compelled to celebrate his heart and commitment to those in need. Art finds it’s own fuel and can carry itself when it is as stunning as the work Prince left behind.”
