The Weeknd has released a video for ‘Nothing is Lost (You Give Me Strength)’, the single taken from the soundtrack of James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.
Directed by Quentin Deronzier, the video takes viewers into the world of Pandora, the film’s fictional landscape.
The Weeknd first teased his involvement in the Avatar soundtrack in early December, before releasing it a day ahead of Avatar’s premiere on December 15th. Produced by frequent The Weeknd collaborators Swedish House Mafia, along with Avatar’s score composer Simon Franglen, the song was selected as one of the nominees for Best Original Song at this year’s Academy Awards.
Discussing the track in an interview with Hollywood Reporter last week, The Weeknd said: “The best part about writing the song was getting notes from James [Cameron] and making sure that all the lyrics and the tones fit the themes of the film”.
