Tourist is one of those producers that makes electronic music that's packed with heart, soul and emotion. Last week, The Grammy winning producer unveiled his latest single Run. "It's a song about falling in love," Tourist explains. The resulting track is laced with breathy vocals and synth lines that dance harmoniously around the track alongside a driving, dance floor ready, 4x4 kick.

Now, i-D are pleased to share the beautiful visual for the track. "The idea for the video came through the tone and pace of the music and inspired by the beautiful photography of Ryan McGinley, with a dirtier colour palette." Director Ozzie Pullin explains "It was about expressing and embodying a real sense of freedom and lust between two people. The whole process was a dream, buzzing around on quad bikes and watching drones fly overhead whilst people ran naked in a field. Perfect. Although the temperature could have been warmer!"

Forthcoming on Tourist's debut album U out 6th Maypress play on the exclusive video premiere of Run.
