British artist Benjamin Clementine released video for I Won`t Complaine on May, 10. The song is included in the album, At Least for Now, all of the songs of which he had written himself. This is the first studio album of the singer, and he received the prestigious British award Mercury Prize for it.
The video was directed by photographer Craig McDean, who shot Kiss It Better for Rihanna.
“Complaining is too much of a luxury for a Bohemian Butterfly” – said Clementine.

Having learned to play the piano being a little boy, Clementine decided to go to Paris in 19 years, where he began writing his own songs. Confidently won the world with his music, he won the Mercury Prize in his 27, and passing through the misery and tragedy of love, has become a new voice of generation. Benjamin prefers to play barefoot onstage because as he says it is the only way he feels the tool: “When I play the piano in the shoes, I have a feeling that I’m pretending.”
