“To mark the release of the singer-songwriter’s enthralling single “No Right To Love You”, London-based multidisciplinary artist Shadi Al-Atallah – known for their distorted self-portraits which explore powerful themes of mental health, queerness, and racial identity, and was recently enlisted by Kanye West to paint the Kardashians – was commissioned to paint continuously for a staggering 24 hours in a gallery space, all in order to explore the cathartic expression and connection between art and mental health.

For the visuals of the strings version of the haunting song, Lewis also invited dancer Becky Namgauds to choreograph a piece of work inspired by both by his song and the surrounding artwork – a raw, impactful piece exploring the meditative potential of art, music and dance.

And the track itself, taken from his debut album released earlier this year, Things I Chose To Remember, is a heart-wrenching earworm with hypnotic lyricism and soul-soothing production.”
