Michael Kiwanuka is pleased to unveil the video for his new single, ‘Cold Little Heart’, starring Get Out’s Lakeith Stanfield.
Lifted from his multiple award nominated and chart-topping second album ‘Love & Hate’, ‘Cold Little Heart’ is the breath-taking, sprawling opening track that sets the tone for the duration of this beautifully crafted album by Michael Kiwanuka.
The cinematic short is directed by David Helman and features fast-rising actor, Lakeith “Keith” Stanfield – best known for his lead role in Jordan Peele’s Get Out. The British-born star has also appeared in Selma and Short Term. You can watch ‘Cold Little Heart’ below:
“Since the narrative is rooted in grief and centres around the loss of a father figure from the perspective of a young teenager, I knew we needed to cast someone who would immediately connect with our audience on an emotional level. Lakeith has been a close friend who has continued to inspire me with both his talent, but also with his genuine curiosity. You can easily spend hours talking to Lakeith about almost anything and expand your perspective on everything from religion to Death Grips. I wrote this concept with Lakeith in mind from the start because every time we’ve worked together he’s always willing to make himself vulnerable and he’s absolutely fearless in front of the camera”, explains Helman.
