Back in support of his celebrated debut album Gang Signs & Prayer, Stormzy drops off the official music video for project track “Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 2.” The aesthetic was directed by Nez of Pulse Films, recognized for his award-winning visuals for artists such as Disclosure and Rudimental.
For “Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 2,” Stormzy wanted to show the UK standing tall, proud and together, amidst the number of tragedies that have struck its soil this past year. The famed grime artist in turn reached out to his fans to come together and portray a united front against a backdrop of more adverse times.
“The lyrics and what the song represents mean a lot to me and I wanted to show a different side to my music,” Stormzy noted. “Having the platform to be able to bring people together to celebrate this through a song that is close to my heart and seeing people from every walk of life coming together to sing in the video, all in one place, has been an amazing experience.”
