It was directed by Blac Ionica. "Upon hearing the track we felt inspired to create something that was firmly rooted in British folklore. 'The Celebration' is a thematically and emotively dark sounding song and we wanted to tell a simple but very cinematic and gripping story that would focus on the atmosphere of the track without being a literal translation of the lyrics. "As the track is so evocative and visual, we really felt that to do the song any justice we needed to tell a story."
