Steve Angello has uploaded the official music video for “Prisoner,” a track from the first chapter of his recent album, Wild Youth. The former member of progressive house supergroup Swedish House Mafia had given us the impression that visual elements would play a significant role in the effort, and the two videos that he’s released so far certainly support that notion.
As with the videos for “The Ocean,” and “Tiger,” the one for “Prisoner” follows what appears to be a pretty well-developed story. This one, however, is set in a modern metropolis – and the scenarios it depicts keep with the criminal theme of the title.
Both videos seem to be segments of larger story arcs (like the one portrayed in the music videos for songs from Disclosure’s sophomore album, Caracal), which could be the audiovisual delivery method which Steve Angello alluded to. Either way, it’s safe to expect that he’ll release more videos for tracks from Wild Youth as festival season begins.
