Directed by Joe Connor (Sam Smith, Coldplay), the video was filmed outside the Tate Modern in London on 20th September, when the band performed an impromptu live set aided by a selection of their fans and passers-by alongside the River Thames.
A 100 strong group of fans were selected at random and invited down to London to meet the band. Information provided was scarce; there would be filming involved and fans would need to arrive in good voice. Following brief rehearsals, everyone descended onto the Southbank to film a live performance where the fans took the chorus. A video was made..
