Music video

The video begins with shots of a London streetscape (looks to be in the Aldgate or Whitechapel area of London), before entering an upscale pub. Keane frontman Tom Chaplin and K'naan are shown singing in the bar while surrounded by patrons enjoying their night, a contrast to some of the song's lyrics.


The song debuted at number forty on the UK Singles Charts, making their tenth top-forty hit and their highest chart single since Spiralling.
