Split into three parts, the cinematic story began with a young girl smuggling a mysterious "ink" through a dystopian police state. The second installment, which was also the official video for Omen, basically ditched the narrative for a series of shots of a sweaty Sam Smith.
The final video, picks up the thread again, with Mariella captured and interrogated by a mysterious stooge with a pocketwatch. Then she turns into Howard Lawrence, the youngest Disclosure brother, after which... oh, I don't know. It's a load of old nonsense. But the song, Jaded, is up to the band's usual high standard.
So that's all well and good. But what we REALLY want to hear is the track Lorde recorded with the brothers' Lawrence. A clip of it leaked yesterday and it sounds more than promising.
