Debuting as a single from “In The Lonely Hour”, the video exploits the ups and downs of an unhealthy marriage while Smith’s lyrics capture each feeling of turmoil and emotional distress.
“This video for me is the best one we have done to date,” admits Smith. “I had so much fun making this video with Luke (director), Diana, and Chris, and I am just overwhelmed that we managed to visually capture the emotion in the song so honestly and so truthfully.”
