Grace Chatto and Jack Patterson of Clean Bandit have self-directed a touching video for Rockabye, featuring guest vocals and appearances from Sean Paul and Anne Marie, telling the tale of a mother trying to provide for her son.

It follows the story of a woman who has been left to raise her little boy alone, turning to pole-dancing as her main source of income, and hustling her perfectly crafted routine at an old man's pub while Anne Marie's lyrics tells her story the band perform the song. The result is quite melancholic yet hopeful tale of a mother's love for her son and her endurance in keeping him safe. 

Cutaways from the story to a performance sequence in stunning cliffside and forest locations ties the visual to the Clean Bandit aesthetic fans have come to know and love.
