P.O.S. holds your attention by the throat is the occasionally bright 'Faded' clip.

P.O.S has unveiled the latest visual from his new album Chill, dummy!, and it's beautiful.

Directed by James Gundersen (Sims' "Brutal Dance," Doomtree's "Generator"), "Faded" finds P.O.S. rapping his verses in the woods interspersed with a full body shot of him as bright almost-pastel imagery passes through him.

It's a strong visual contrast that fits a song which is as foreboding as it is hopeful.

Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Lady Midnight lend vocals to the track, but we never see them. It adds both a dreamlike and claustrophobic element to the presentation.
