The brand spanking new single was released a few hours ago, as I said in my review of the album Babel, Lover of the Light was truly a magnificent song which can only be justified by such an jaw dropping music video featuring Idris Elba. Watch the music video first and I will give my thoughts on it afterwards.


What strikes me on the song and music video is the emphasis on the word Light, cleverly intended to be something that the actor can not see but still manages his daily routine. Even in the short span of the odd 5 minutes the video captivates you in the world of a blind man in a breathtaking beautiful landscape in which he has no boundaries.

What we can take from this song and brilliant music video is that, we tend to see too much from our eyes and too little from our heart.
