Years & Years return with a dystopian adventure directed by the band's regular collaborator Fred Rowson, featuring frontman Olly Alexander as the last human in a future world populated by androids.

In this the first part of a sequential series of videos from tracks from the new Years & Years, Olly is captured and presented as entertainment for a panel of judges in the Eastern city of Palo Santo (the video was shot in Thailand). 

In a way the video is the reverse of Justin Timberlake's Dirty video - a human dances for an android audience, rather than the other way around. But like Dirty, the track Sanctify has that huge Michael Jackson influence.
