Allow me to present ‘Victory’, from ‘Rivonia’, my new album, which comes out 8 April 2013 on City Slang.
We shot the video for ‘Victory’ on a cloudy Sunday at Constitution Hill, a famous landmark in Johannesburg and a place that played a significant role in South African history. Today the old fort and prisons have been converted into a museum, and are open to the public, but in the past many important figures were incarcerated there, including Nelson and Winnie Mandela, and Mahatma Gandhi. 15 local children between the ages of 7 and 11 played in the film, and undoubtedly slept very well after a long day of playing at battle.

I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it!
