Released to coincide with what would have been his 70th birthday, this posthumous clip is part lyric video and part mood piece, but primarily a reminder that Bowie's ghost will haunt us for as long as there are screens and speakers and eyes and ears.
Featuring Jamaican vocalist Alexx A-Game and MCs Serocee and Fox on the club track, “Gangsters” is Famous Eno’s latest grimy club anthem.
For the Irish producer’s infectious dancehall banger, Black Dog Films director Jamie Delaney flips the switch on the idea of gangsters with two crooked cops terrorising South London. “I really wanted to do a video that told a story, a twist on the lyrical content of the track,” Jamie Delaney.
Any Insane Clown Posse fan can tell you that magnets and the reason why we're attracted to certain things is beyond comprehension. So it's possible that Lorde can't explain why she fell for the philandering Hills douchebag at the center of this story, but you can be damn sure she knows what she's gonna do to him when she finds out about the other women in his life.
Toby Dye, director: “This video is the result of a really enjoyable collaboration between Elliot, James Lavelle and I. I’ve always loved the aesthetic of cities photographed by night and when I heard ‘Murmur’, with its undertones of hazy noir, I knew that nocturnal London, in all its beauty and brutality, was the perfect setting for the video."

Here we are, two weeks later from the action seen in "Holding On" with director Ryan Hope continuing the sci-fi storyline that looks to bridge all the videos from new Disclosure album Caracal. An equally important milepost is that we're nearly three years on from "Latch," the Sam Smith and Disclosure collaboration that played a monumental role in both artists rocketing to fame. This reunion is sexy and slinky, as is the video, which doesn't get overly concerned with advancing the plot and choosing to focus on Smith in the midst of a dancefloor that approaches the vibe and scale of the Matrix Zion Dance Party.
