It takes a magical twist...
The track is taken from Brown’s recent solo album ‘Ripples’, which arrived in February after a gap of 10 years.
In the video for ‘From Chaos To Harmony’, we see a magical string of events unfolding after a young boy encounters a Zoltar-puppet that has been crafted in the shape of Ian Brown.
While rising British star Noah Jupe takes the leading role in the video as the young boy, Brown himself appears too – he’s seen walking along the illuminated promenade of the Southend seafront.

NME‘s review of ‘Ripples’ described Brown’s comeback as a “maddeningly repetitive collection”.
“It’s hard to heap more praise on this record. Even Brown’s reggae and dancehall covers – a turbo-charged version of Barrington Levy’s ‘Black Roses’ and a vocally flat rendition of Mikey Dread’s ‘Break Down The Wall’ – are scant cause for celebration,” stated our review.
“‘Ripples’’ bold breakbeats and slinky basslines make for one of the album’s most kinetic numbers, but the song does little to break up the overarching monotony. As a solo artist who’s far eclipsed the output of his former epoch-defining band, no one can criticise Brown for trying. But he can definitely do better.”
