Lukas Graham released a powerfully emotional new music video for their song “Not A Damn Thing Change” on Friday, dedicated to the memory of a childhood friend who passed away earlier this year.
Lead singer Lukas Forchhammer filmed the video with some of his real-life friends from his hometown in Christiania, Denmark.
“The song is a tribute to one of the guys I grew up with who hung himself in January. He was three months older than me and we walked through life together,” Forchhammer said in a press release to Billboard.
In the video, Forchhammer and his friends attend a funeral for their friend and then go drinking and playing soccer in the pouring rain.
“Not A Damn Thing Changed” is featured on Graham’s upcoming album 3 (The Purple Album), out Oct. 26.
