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.

The promo features the death of a young woman, who gets taken away by the Grim Reaper. A modern-day Beck is shown walking alongside a younger version of himself and with Death too.
