New Release & Video: Jonathan Wilson – There’s A Light ft. Bedouine & Lucius

Jonathan Wilson has unveiled the video for There’s A Light, off the new album Rare Birds, out now on Bella Union

Jonathan’s longtime friend and collaborator Grant James created the video, shooting with obsolete Japanese broadcast cameras and performing analog effects by hand. The playfully transcendental video features an introduction by Bedouine and guest vocals from Lucius…

Talking about the track, Wilson states: “One of my favourite tracks on Rare Birds is undoubtedly “There’s a Light”. It was written late in the sessions, the idea came to me that I needed an anthem of pure positivity, the point was to put these words of peace, love and hope in the mouths of whoever sang along. The track you hear is the first take we played of the song, ever”
