To continue making noise while the new album comes to life Fait Accompli recently recorded their own electrified punk version of the M.I.A riot anthem Born Free.
When recording was complete, we discussed a whole range of video ideas. But after listening to Born Free on repeat, the random thought of getting the talented artist Anthony Lister to direct our video was all of a sudden becoming an apparent reality (in our heads).
Ray who is friends with Lister built up the courage to ask if he would be keen on making a music video. And as luck would have it, Lister said yes.
After going back and forth over several ideas, in the end Lister decided to take the reigns and make the video by himself. Naturally we were all curious, excited and a little nervous, but mostly we were excited.
A few days later in pure Lister style, he emailed us a download link and disappeared overseas.
..."Although we are living in a time where some of the freedoms are currently being held to ransom, people are standing up for their rights everyday. And that's a big reason why the war cry of 'I was Born Free' resonates with us as a band. Born Free is a call to arms, a message to unite us all, to embrace our right to be free all around the world".
