Jamie xx celebrates the good life in his new official video for “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” a track off the British producer’s vibrant debut effort In Colour.
Directed by Rollo Jackson, the clip features guest vocals from Young Thug and Popcaan as the trio hang out on high-rise balconies and live the good life. Jackson intercuts these breezy moments with raucous performance clips from New York and Jamaica.
The soulful track is built a the prominent sample from the Persuasions, and Young Thug injects the tune with a more direct vibe by rhyming, “I don’t have patience baby.”
Jamie xx released the video as a follow up to his acclaimed pop-up event over the summer in New York City, and dropped the remix for “Good Times” (featuring Skepta) on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show.
