Jessie Ware has shared a new short film for her song 'Remember Where You Are'.
Her album 'What's Your Pleasure?' arrived last year, a disco-fuelled missile that presented some much-needed good vibes amid lockdown.
The songwriter returns to the record for her song 'Remember Where You Are', a soulful and uplifting slice of UK songwriting.
There's now a full video for the song - well, more like a short film - and it's steered by BAFTA winning director Dominic Savage.
Starring British actress Gemma Arterton, it opens on Valentine's Day and finds the star wandering through deserted London streets.
A glimpse of hope and renewal, it taps into the growing feeling that this time, lockdown might be coming to a permanent end.
"It was a real pleasure to collaborate with Jessie and Gemma on this short film that is inspired by Jessie Ware’s beautiful music. It was also inspired by the real feeling that was felt when we filmed in the deserted streets of eerily strange lockdown London on a Saturday night/Sunday morning,” Dominic said.
“The feelings and emotions in the film are a true reflection of what that felt like, and what this time invokes. Sadness, nostalgia, pain and defiance. But when we climbed Primrose Hill and the sun started to rise above the city, there was real hope and joy for a future that will surely be ours. Listening to Jessie’s music. There is no doubt of that."
"This song has always meant a lot to me and I was determined for other people to hear it and for it to be single. I am so touched by how many people have embraced this song, particularly when it's one of your favourite actresses and an acclaimed film director. Working with Gemma, Dominic and their team has been an absolute joy. To have them realise my song with a beautiful ode to London and the longing for human touch and interaction couldn't be more of a compliment. It's a truly cherished piece of work."
