‘Hele’ is the latest track from Zild’s latest album ‘Huminga’ to receive a music video. Other videos for the album include ‘Kyusi’, ‘Apat’ and ‘Bungantulog’.

Following the ‘Hele’ music video release, Zild took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes shot of his partner wearing a green suit for the video. “Outfit inspired by Kim Kardashian [at the] Met Gala 2021 but make it green,” he quipped.

Zild released his sophomore solo album ‘Huminga’ in April. In an interview with NME, the artist revealed that while his solo debut ‘Homework Machine’ – which was NME‘s second best Asian album of 2020 – featured more electronic elements than he’s used to, ‘Huminga’ marks a return to his love for organic instruments.

“I feel like ‘Huminga’ is more me. ‘Homework Machine’ was really more of a novelty for me, but ‘Huminga’ is more about me and my songs,” he said.
