silence is golden

it is one of the most iconic and recognizable songs in contemporary music. from its opening notes to its closing tune, “The Sound Of Silence” is inescapable. it has been featured prominently in popular culture, and has received musical makeovers from countless artists in a variety of genres. the latest of these renditions comes from an unlikely candidate who has managed to turn a simple folk song into a profound listening experience. now, they’ve paired with a brilliant director who has created some visionary clips throughout his career (including this one and this one, among many others) to present an audiovisual encounter that alters everything we know about the original version. welcome back, gentleman.
