Kate Moss Illuminates Massive Attack’s ‘Ritual Spirit’ Video
Massive Attack have shared a third music video pulled from their recent Ritual Spirit EP.
Medium and Massive Attack’s own 3D (aka Robert Del Naja) created the newly minted clip for the EP's title cut in the same darkly riveting vein as the “Voodoo in My Blood” and “Take It There” videos before it. The English outfit again enlists a marquee name for the project, and this time it’s model Kate Moss. The video is markedly more stripped down than its predecessors, featuring Moss alone twirling a single light bulb on a string in a dark room. Check it out above.
“Me and Kate have been friends for years, but had never collaborated, so last year we booked a studio with Medium and set up a shoot,” 3D said in a press release. “During the session Kate was dancing in the dark, lighting herself with a naked bulb. She perfectly captured the essence of this track… intimate and ritualistic. We edited it back in Bristol to keep it raw with no re-touching, I didn’t want to lose the spirit of that moment.”
“I have always been a huge fan of Massive Attack and 3D has been a friend for many years,” Moss added. “When he asked me to collaborate with him I didn’t have to think twice. I always thought their visuals were amazing and I was proud to be in this video.”
The title track, “Voodoo in My Blood” and “Take It There” appeared alongside Ritual Spirit’s fourth and final song, “Dead Editors,” when the EP landed back in January. 3D and Daddy G (aka Grant Marshall) plan to release another EP and a full-length before 2016 is out.
