Video was previously only available on Apple Music
Pharrell Williams‘s thought-provoking ‘Freedom’ video is now available to watch on YouTube.
The video, previously only available on Apple Music, features a diverse array of imagery illuminating how levels of freedom differ across the world, ranging from horses stampeding across the American west to workers stitching garments in a factory. Watch it below.
‘Freedom’ was premiered by Zane Lowe on his new Beats 1 radio show last month (June) to mark the launch of the Apple Music streaming service. The track, Pharrell’s first new solo offering since 2014’s ‘G I R L’ album, has since peaked at Number 36 on the UK’s Official Singles Chart.
Meanwhile, Pharrell recently suggested that he has collaborated with Adele, but said that her responsibilities as a new mother made their time together brief. The British singer gave birth to her first child, Angelo, in October 2012. She is now thought to be working on her third album.
Speaking during a talk at the Cannes Lions festival in June, Pharrell said: “I’ve seen her recently. She’s kinda like, ‘Okay, guys, I’m gonna open my diary for 20 minutes’. So it’s like, okay, you have 20 minutes, or 32 minutes really. Then she gives it to you and closes it up and disappears, and she’s off with her beautiful boy – and that’s what it’s all about.”
