Devlin f/ Ed Sheeran – ‘Watchtower’ | Music Video

It was just last month that we were treated to a 30-second teaser of “Watchtower”, UK rapper Devlin‘s upcoming dual single and music video, and now fans can experience the short film in all its thrilling cinematic glory. The track features the red-headed heartthrob Ed Sheeran and is produced by one of the country’s best new beatsmiths, Labrinth, who sonically transports Bob Dylan‘s “All Along The Watchtower” into the 21st Century.

Meanwhile, the visual centerpiece – which features some of the UK’s top young acting talents in Jaime Winstone (Kidulthood), Neil Maskell (Atonement), Tilly Vosburgh (Vera Drake), and George Russo (Turnout) – depicts a tale of crime and getaway, played by the two leading names, Devlin and Ed Sheeran. The picture even leaves the door ajar for a possible sequel, so stay tuned.

“Watchtower” will be released as a single on August 19th, with Devlin’s sophomore album, A Moving Picture, arriving on October 29th.
