Will Reid directs a mysterious ritualistic ceremony on the beach for Joe Hertz, involving a frightened young couple, and a striking red-robed priest and his followers.

Stylishly shot and choreographed, with an impressive use of colour, makeup and casting, Reid gives a refreshing and resourceful interpretation of this heartfelt R&B track. It's a bit counter-intuitive, but it works.

From the director

WILL REID:

"We wanted to create visuals for the track that worked with the sombre lyrical sentiments and that contrasted with the otherwise poppy and upbeat tone of the music. I wanted to take us into a world far removed from where music of this genre typically goes in music videos - something paganistic and folklore inspired. Heartbreak as a ritualistic cleansing at the hands of mysterious, magical figures."
