And here it is. Yoann Lemoine, the multi-talented Frenchman behind Woodkid, has finally unveiled the video for “The Golden Age”, the fourth and final chapter in a series of epic, cinematic videos: “Iron”, “Run Boy Run”, and “I Love You”. This beautifully shot eleven-minute video, which pays tribute to his favorite photographer William Gedney, features an extended and re-recorded version of “Embers” by renowned British composer Max Richter.
“The Golden Age” is “about the very early days of the boy running in ‘Run Boy Run’. It’s like a postcard from childhood. It’s about skin, love, fear, violence and boys,” says Woodkid. The track is lifted from his debut album “The Golden Age”, released last year via Island.
