Mercury Nominated J Hus Releases New Video

31.07.2017 - Posted by : James Campbell

Following his Mercury Prize nomination for Common Sense, J Hus releases his new video for ‘Spirit’ from Black Dog Films director Hugo Jenkins.

Shot in Jamestown, Accra, in Ghana, Hugo captures the towns’ energy with some arresting visuals of J Hus amidst the community at work and play.

Of the video Hugo said: “I wanted to capture this spirit but also keep the essence of who J Hus is. Capturing Hus on a miniature journey through Accra, meeting people and ending on an intimate show to me felt like the most authentic approach”.

On ‘Spirit’, Hus explores his time spent in prison back in 2015. “I wanted a song that could really resonate with people in that situation…I made this one to try to keep everyone’s head up. It’s a purely positive message.”
