Thievery Corporation’s track, "Letter To The Editor" from their newest record "The Temple of I & I" manifested itself into music video form and premiered earlier this week February 20th via Afropunk, featuring Racquel Jones and directed by Richard Elgood.
Watch the video above!
The overall vibe an Jamaican aesthetic shine through just perfectly in this video as it shows off the musical styles of Kingston's Racquel Jones and the genuine look into the rich and rhythmic culture that encapsulates the vibrant nation , one of main points of the record as a whole.
Eric Hilton of the group reminisces about Jones as a "shy, sweet Kingston girl. Then she dropped lyrical fire that burnt down the whole studio. This little video was shot indy-style on location in Kingston to give a small taste of the new Thievery Corporation LP, The Temple of I & I."
This small taste only succeeds in making listeners and fans craving more and more from the group and making us only all the more anxious in seeing what Thievery Corporation has in store next!
For all European fans, don't forget that the group will be on tour which kicked off earlier this week. Let us know what you thought of the video below and on social media!
