Michael Holyk's second video for Callum Beattie follows We Are Stars in emphasising his down-to-earth qualities, but in a very different setting.

In keeping with the songtitle, Man Behind The Sun is as blazingly sun-kissed as We Are Stars was bracingly cold - not so surprising as director and artist have replaced the Scottish highlands in winter with Spain in high summer. But they have retained the overall natural feel, and the focus on the performance within very beautiful landscapes.
