Childish Gambino is your guide to the madness that is America in this provocative and compelling video. And if CG seems a little more ludicrously ecstatic than he should, well, absurdity is perhaps the only appropriate reaction to our perilous times.
Step through the door with Albert Hammond Jr. and actress Portia Doubleday in this beautifully dreamlike exploration of love and life and loss directed by Fraser RIGG.
Albert Hammond Jr: "I followed Fraser into the abyss. He had a real vision he expressed by saying 'Love is the one thing that transcends time and space.' I felt like he was moved by the song and knew how to capture it visually. I understood what he meant but to me the love didn’t represent human connection. I knew It would be the most universal way to show it visually but I found myself realizing the cycle of who I was and what I was about to become, with the death of my old self and the birth of this new person, was what transcended time and space. That love for life, that lust for life is forever reshaping itself."

Norwegian singer/songwriter Ora reveals herself to the world with the music video for Farewell from her debut EP Womb. The word Ora translates to mean ‘time’ in Italian. “It’s something floating and eternal,” she explains, “a form of connection not related to identity - which reflects a lot in the visuals.”
Take the movie Drive. Replace movie heartthrob Ryan Gosling with music video heartthrob Daniel Schienert — aka 1/2 of directing duo Daniels — and lose all the violence so that you can fit in way more sexiness. The result is the very short film Boy Racers, which doubles as both a kinda/sorta Metronomy video and a cautionary tale about self-manipulating men in self-driving cars.
A strange night at the mines for Killers frontman Brandon Flowers as he plays a frontiersman leaving his wife, played by Evan Rachel Wood, for a visit quest that's initiated by Psychedelic Furs mainman Richard Butler.
If you're going to do anything that's even close to the masterful True Detective opening credits, then you better do it well. And if you know anything about Taylor Swift, then you know that she only does things well. "Style" plays with double-exposures, projections and other tricks as we see a love affair come together and shatter apart again and again.
Bo Burnham knows the secret of a hit pop song. Be vague, be catchy, repeat stuff, and obscure your darkest desires down lest they pop up and scare your audience. Bo could actually use some help on that last element — ie: the fingerbanging references should be masked at least a little bit, you shouldn't let your inner devil voice take over, and tearing a heart out should always be metaphorical.
