Bishop Nehru has released the music video for a song from his forthcoming new album Elevators: Act I & II.

READ: DOOM And Kaytranada To Produce Bishop Nehru’s New Album

Titled “Rooftops,” the surreal three-minute long video finds the rapper on top of a building before descending through a virtual cityscape.

“‘Rooftops’ symbolizes the fall of the Titans and how they must rise back into their own powers, Nehru said to Complex. “They must realize that the ‘gods’ have used their own power against them to reclaim their spot. Like the Titans, we must mentally and more importantly spiritually reclaim our power.”

The DOOM-produced track is the first single from Elevators: Act I & II, which will also feature production from Kaytranada. In a previous interview with Pigeons & Planes, Nehru said that the album was strongly inspired by the Beach Boys‘ seminal album Pet Sounds.

“This project is a collection of my feelings straight from my heart, all of my ideas were created specifically off of instinct and intuitive occurrences,” Nehru said. “This album is my answer to the question, ‘What would you say your music sound like?’ My answer to that would be ‘Grammy Rap.’ There’s ‘mumble rap’ and then there’s ‘Grammy rap.’ With this project I was largely influenced by music theory and Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys. This is my attempt at a ‘rap’ Pet Sounds.”

Elevators drops on March 16.
