Michael Kiwanuka – “Cold Little Heart” Video

Micheal Kiwanuka video for Cold Little Heart

The first single, ‘Cold Little Heart’ off of Michael Kiwanuka’s sophomore album, ‘Love & Hate’ has gotten a long awaited official video. The video is directed by David Helman and stars Keith Stanfield (Atlanta and most recently Get Out). The song has been picking up extra traction due to it being the intro song for HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies.’

Here is what director David Helman had to say about the video: “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.

In short, another powerful visual off of ‘Love & Hate.’ Check out Kiwanuka’s US Tour Dates below.
