Jessie Ware has teamed up with BAFTA winning director Dominic Savage and British actress Gemma Arterton for a new video for ‘Remember Where You Are’.
The latest single to be lifted from most recent album ‘What’s Your Pleasure’, Arterton features after the two became friends after an appearance on Jessie’s Table Manners Podcast.
Developing a concept for a video as a love letter to London during lockdown, the clip was co-produced with Arterton’s Rebel Park Productions.
“This song has always meant a lot to me and I was determined for other people to hear it and for it to be single,” Jessie explains I am so touched by how many people have embraced this song, particularly when it’s one of your favourite actresses and an acclaimed film director. Working with Gemma, Dominic and their team has been an absolute joy. To have them realise my song with a beautiful ode to London and the longing for human touch and interaction couldn’t be more of a compliment. It’s a truly cherished piece of work.”
Arterton adds: “Jessie’s track feels like an anthem for the extraordinary times we have been living through. We wanted the video to be at once a love letter to locked down London; a remembrance of what our wonderful city was and will be again, and a snapshot of this present moment: coming out of loneliness and darkness and stepping into light and a more hopeful future. It has been an absolute joy working on this film. Shooting in a totally deserted central London is something I’ll never forget.”
