Beck has unveiled a haunting video for his track 'Heart Is A Drum'.

The track features on the singer's 2013 album 'Morning Phase'. For the video, Beck worked with British music video director Sophie Muller, who is best known for her collaborations with Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Blur, Garbage and a host of others.
