The band also performed this track to open up 2021’s Brit Awards which were hosted by Jack Whitehall earlier this year. The song was officially released on May 7.
On the track, the video’s director Dave Meyers had this to say, “The video is a metaphor for how, right now, we all feel alienated, far removed from our world, almost like we’re on an alien planet”.
He also added, “And ultimately we find love in the streets and that euphoria shoots us off into the stratosphere of our own energy and higher power”.
