Music videoEdit

Spanish film directors Juan Antonio Bayona and Sergio G. Sánchez co-directed the video for "Disconnected"[1][2] with Leticia Dolera in the main role. Bayona, Sanchez and Keane filmed the video inside a haunted house in Barcelona, which pays homage to the '70s horror movie aesthetic. Both Bayona and Sanchez created a surreal and moving plot which tells the story of two lovers who have become detached from each other and ultimately question the notion of reality and mortality.[3] A video teaser was shown at keanemusic.com. The teaser premiered on 16 April 2012.[4]

"Disconnected" won Best Video at the Q Awards in London on 22 October 2012.[5]
