Inspired by the film Cloud Atlas, ‘A Place for the Heart’ tells the story of the characters played by Halle Berry and Tom Hanks, who are trying to come together. The video was shot in Venice and Camber Sands – places that connect with the imagery of seafaring in the lyrics – and alludes to Cloud Atlas’ theme of reincarnation.
