The Bonnie and Clyde-inspired video for ‘Motorbike’, which was directed by .Paak, has also been released and you can watch it below.

“The inception of the song started with this afrobeat-type instrumental that my homeboy Nate Mercereau made,” Bridges explained in a statement about the making of ‘Motorbike’. “Prior to the session, I was in Puerto Rico for my 30th with my best friends, and the energy of that trip totally inspired this song.

“‘Motorbike’ is about living in the moment and escaping with someone. It’s the personification of that unspoken chemistry you have with that person.

“A special thank you to my man Anderson .Paak for the stunning visuals.”

The two artists performed their collaborative track together back in November as part of the Australian live music series The Sound.
