With their brand new album ‘A Billion Heartbeats’ set to land on 3rd April, Mystery Jets are now sharing the video for the anthemic title track.

Shot in Trafalgar Square, this was where frontman Blaine Harrison formed the idea for their new record back in 2017 after witnessing an entire year of protests.

“We increasingly hear from musicians that music should be an escape these days - that there’s enough suffering in the world, enough misery on the news, without writings songs about it too,” a statement explains. “‘A Billion Heartbeats’ makes all that sound like a bit of a cop-out. These are songs of protest that get the heart racing in joy; high on hope, and serious in their message. Proof, basically, that music speaks louder than words.
