Labrinth enters an idyllic dreamscape, and encounters two characters, a boy and a young man - arguably representations of aspects of his own psyche - in Charles Todd's video for Something's Got To Give.

This is the second part of Labrinth’s “Miracle” trilogy - following the video by Sacha Barbin for Miracle, an allegorical story of a young boy who exchanges his imagination for power and wealth, in a Faustian deal with a mysterious stranger. Here Labrinth is repeatedly offered different paths by his own man and boy characters - a metaphor for his own personal struggle with imagination, creativity and the highs and lows of being in the music industry - and is pushed to the limit in order to find himself. 

Todd brought the DP Marcell Rev to the project, best known for his innovative work on HBO’s Euphoria, the series Labrinth scored, starring Zendaya and executive produced by Drake.
