Faithless have shared a new music video.
Following the release of ‘All Blessed’, Faithless’ first album in a decade, the dance outfit have shared a new video for album track ‘I Need Someone’.
The visuals for the track, which features former Young Poet Laureate Caleb Femi and vocalist Nathan Ball, were filmed in Los Angeles last year, and focuses on the last 12 months, the contrast between privelige and poverty, and the events surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement.
Speaking about the new video, Faithless said: “Proud to present the soaring ‘I Need Someone’ which finds ‘Synthesizer’ vocalist Nathan Ball lending Faithless his lush emotive melodies once again, this time alongside an eloquent rap delivered by the acclaimed Nigerian born, London bred poet Caleb Femi. This plaintive cry for human connection is set on a wide screen musical backdrop of kinetic house beats, moody rumbling bass, afrobeat inspired guitar and Blissy’s euphoric synths – music for the heart, soul and dancefloor.”

In a recent interview with BBC Radio 6 Music, Faithless’ Sister bliss called on Westminster to step in and offer greater support to artists, venues and the wider sector amid the coronavirus pandemic.
