The newest single and video from The Great & The Magnificent sees them in reflective mood, as When I’m Gone featuring Kameron Corvet flows through the feeling highs and lows of an action packed career so far have created. With the new video released today, it’s a chance to sample a song that showcases some of their finest work yet.

Five years together, performing all over Europe has certainly lead to some incredible opportunities for The Great & The Magnificent, but it’s also been filled with hardships, and circumstances drifting in the wrong direction, failed label deals and at times, segregation from their local rap scene. It’s been a thrill ride, but a tumultuous one, and When I’m Gone explores all of that, a sort of open letter to the music industry they’ve poured so much into. Kameron Corvet’s delicious voice provides a great hook on the choruses, allowing heartfelt verses to really shine, and the straightforward black and white video is similarly superbly subtle allowing wonderful wordplay and an earnest, tender, intelligent song to shine.

The Great & The Magnificent release When I’m Gone (feat. Kameron Corvet) today.
