Stormzy has shared the moving new visuals for his latest single ‘Superheroes’ which is taken from his album Heavy Is The Head.
The video for ‘Superheroes’ premiered in a number of school classrooms across the country. Directed by British filmmaker Taz Tron Delix, the clip includes nods to worthy heroes such as Dave, Little Simz and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford. The video is also dedicated to the memory of the late Chadwick Boseman.
The film was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, states director Delix who told Little Black Book: “We can’t ignore what happened,” Delix said. “It’s what the whole song is about. And it’s what Stormzy’s about. He was there on the day, out there protesting.”
In a short recorded speech which accompanied the broadcast of the ‘Superheroes’ video in schools, Stormzy said: “I wanted to show it to you guys first [because] being students at school, I think it’s important that you guys understand how powerful you are.”
“Despite the colour of your skin, despite where you come from, despite your religion, despite whatever it is that you feel may be holding you back: you are a superhero.
“So, I wanted to make this video to inspire you guys, to let you know that the sky is the limit. To let you know that all those things inside of you, make you incredible.”
