Shamir's New "Darker" Video Was Shot by High-Flying Drones

by Abby Schreiber

Ahead of the release of his debut LP, Ratchet, on May 19th, PAPER Beautiful Person Shamir just dropped a new video for his soulful album cut, "Darker," that takes the singer out of puppetland and into the Joshua Tree desert. Cutting back-and-forth between daytime and night, the video was directed by Anthony Sylvester who used high-flying drones to shoot the footage. It's a quieter clip -- and quieter song -- than the upbeat dance jams we're used to getting from Shamir but one that's a good watch nonetheless and an even better example of this young talent's range.
