“Everybody knows the damn truth
Our nation lied, we lost respect
When we wake up, what can we do?
Get the kids ready, take them to school
Everybody knows they don’t have a chance
To get a decent job, to have a normal life...”
The CHIMNEY Stockholm office was responsible for the complete sound design and VFX for Madonna's newest music video 'God Control'. The video has, not entirely unexpected, chalked up some 3.8 million clicks throughout the Net and has sparked a bit of controversy with its explicit imagery. The video was directed by Jonas Åkerlund, who had the honor of realizing the 'American Life' video for the Goddess of Pop back in 2003.
'God Control' was just released on Madonna’s 14th studio album entitled MADAME X. The song, similar to 'I Rise', is themed upon the catastrophic gun control policy in the United States. Featured on the track alongside a volley of gunfire, a typewriter and Madonna is also the Tiffin Children’s Choir, consisting of more than 80 children from Kingston.
Although the opening sequence establishes New York as the setting, the club scenes were filmed at the historic Globe Theatre in Los Angeles. In an interview with people magazine, Madonna shares the following about her song : “Seeing the reality, and the brutality of things makes you wake up. This is really happening. This is what it looks like. ‘Does it make you feel bad? Good, ’cause then maybe you will do something about it.”
