Lucy Rose today revealed the music video for her latest single 'Nebraska', with the visuals starring none other than Danny Dyer in an unexpected and unlikely collaboration.
Perhaps even more unexpected is exactly what happens with Danny in the video, with the actor reflecting the lyrical themes of the track by getting into drag and showing it's not about justifying yourself to others, but instead all about doing things that make you happy despite other expectations.
Chatting about his involvement, Dyer said: "I was honoured to be asked by the maestro that is Lucy Rose to be part of her video. When I got the treatment through I was overwhelmed, it's such a moving piece of work. I'm beyond proud to be a part of it. I've always believed that people should be who they wanna be, regardless of race or gender. Freedom of expression is so important."
Lucy adds: "I'm hoping it'll make someone feel something when they watch it, I hope it comforts someone and I hope it shows that no-one is who you expect them to be. Danny has taken a huge risk making this video and I'm eternally grateful to him for believing in me and this song."
Past musical collaborators Ghostpoet and Rae Morris also star in the video, with cameos also coming from Slaves, Joseph Salvat and more.
The 'Nebraska' EP is officially released on March 18, including seven remixes of the track alongside the original.
'Nebraska' is taken from Lucy's sophomore album 'Work It Out', out now via Columbia.
