Jamie xx has released the video for his latest single "Idontknow." The video stars Northern Irish choreographer Oona Doherty and was co-directed by Doherty and Luca Traffarelli. The video was shot in Belfast, the night before the city went into lockdown.


In lieu of a statement, Doherty submitted a short poem alongside the video:


“I don’t know
Boiling up inside ya, Like a kettle
Like a frying pan spitting hot oil out.
Roaming, soaking, empty streets
Blue tv light beaming out
A dirty beat
Our stamping feet
Don’t know whear to put it
Some times
Some times you just need a hug”
