Massive Attack have released the video for “Ritual Spirit“.
The track is taken from the EP of the same name released earlier this year
The new video has been directed by Robert Del Naja (3D), from the band, and Medium and stars Kate Moss; you can watch it below.
“Me and Kate have been friends for years, but had never collaborated, so last year we booked a studio with Medium and set up a shoot,” says Del Naja. “During the session Kate was dancing in the dark, lighting herself with a naked bulb. She perfectly captured the essence of this track… intimate and ritualistic. We edited it back in Bristol to keep it raw with no re-touching, I didn’t want to lose the spirit of that moment.”
I have always been a huge fan of Massive Attack and 3D has been a friend for many years,” says Moss. “When he asked me to collaborate with him I didn’t have to think twice. I always thought their visuals were amazing and I was proud to be in this video.”
The band had previously released a video for “Take It There [ft. Tricky]”.
