With their debut album The Shadow Of Heaven shaping up to be one of the most anticipated of the year, MONEY today unveil the video to new single ‘Hold Me Forever‘. This exquisitely beautiful work is the directorial debut of celebrated actor Cillian Murphy (‘Inception’, ’28 Days Later’, ‘The Wind That Shakes The Barley’, ‘Breakfast On Pluto’) and features dancers from the English National Ballet and filmed at locations including The Old Vic Theatre in London.
The video is currently premiering on Pitchfork and you can watch it below:

“Hold me Forever knocked me out when I first heard it. It’s a sublime mix of beautiful melody and arresting emotion – but uniquely it is not a love song. I wanted to try and match the song with images that were both visually elegant and powerful. For some reason ballet dancers kept coming into my head. The strength, commitment and fluidity of movement of the dancers seemed somehow to cut wonderfully to the song…….” – Cillian Murphy
