He’s a master showman, singer, pianist. He’s the all round goods.” The spirit of that statement is realized in a new music video released to accompany the song. A very eccentric dance party sees characters in extravagant costumes vibing to the slow driving beat of the music. Director Hector Dockrill was reportedly inspired by Paris Is Burning, a 1990 ball culture documentary. Other artists featured on the Revamp album include, Lady Gaga, Queens of the Stone Age, and Florence and the Machine.
