Declan McKenna reveals ‘Rapture’ video

The track is lifted from his recently released second album.

Following the release of his second album ‘Zeros’ in September, Declan McKenna is sharing the video for album gem ‘Rapture’.

“Rapture - though it seems to touch on the current state of the world - was born early last year, and reflects some of my thoughts on the end of the world and the threats that humanity will face in the future, and on common fears for the future,” he explains. “The problem we face now seems to be that for each common fear there is a contrasting view that at least appears to have wide support, I guess my worry now is how such huge numbers of people can move forward without unity under immediate threat. The new music video isn’t the most serious in concept, for a song based around the end of the world in times so hard for not just myself but all those involved in making it, we had to seek some joy and humour… and we had to shoot outside in the cold.”
