Damian reportedly shot his first music video for the track ‘She Comes,’ out March 24, 2023.  It is the first single off his highly anticipated debut album titled ‘Mission Creep’ scheduled for release on Decca Records later in June of this year. The music video was shot by Squire Studio and directed by none other than Nick Murphy, the same director for Damian’s recent MGM+ and ITVX mini-series A Spy Among Friends. Location of the music video shoot was Master Shipwright’s Palace in Deptford, London, off the banks of the River Thames. The venue is described as “a peculiar new theatre in Deptford’s secret palace” that is “10 minutes from London Bridge.” View more photos in our Gallery here.
