Watch Claptone’s ‘Wake Up’ Music Video

The mysterious beak-clad DJ and producer Claptone recently dropped a house and garage inspired track titled “Wake Up” featuring vocalist James Vincent McMorrow. Claptone referred to the song himself as a “a piece of vintage 90s pop house [that] evokes moments of happiness and melancholia at the same time.”

To top it off, he also released an accompanying music video directed by Keith Musil, depicting “the true story of a man who was struck by lighting seven times.” Check it out below!
