Bringing the title track from their new EP, Ritual Spirit, to life, 3D aka Robert del Naja called on longtime pal and experienced music video star Kate Moss. "I have always been a huge fan of Massive Attack and 3D has been a friend for many years," says Kate in a press release. "When he asked me to collaborate with him I didn't have to think twice. I always thought their visuals were amazing and I was proud to be in this video."

"During the session Kate was dancing in the dark, lighting herself with a naked bulb," 3D explains in the same statement. "She perfectly captured the essence of this track… intimate and ritualistic." Her body illuminated in the darkness, flashes of the supermodel give way to cool shadows. "We edited it back in Bristol to keep it raw with no re-touching," continues the musician. "I didn't want to lose the spirit of that moment." Building momentum as strobing rainbow lights dance across a statuesque, nude bodysuit-wearing Kate, viewers are left feeling like they're witnessing some kind of beautiful ritual... or like they're on the best fairground ride ever. Scream if you wanna go faster.
