It's been an incredible 12 months for Years & Years with a an official UK Number 1 album and four tracks appearing in the UK Top 40 Singles Charts, including back-to-back Number 1 and 2 success for "King" and "Shine".

The trio's next release is a re-work of the HUGE tune "Desire" this time featuring the vocals of Tove Lo. The video for the track was released a few days ago and tackles the battle of sexual politics within music videos.

Give it a watch below!

In an open letter adding context to the video, Lead singer Olly Alexander said: "Let’s face it there are a lot of other sexualities and identities that are well deserving of some shiny pop video love."

Speaking to NME Magazine, Olly went on to say: "As a teenager I was inspired by stars who I felt were doing just that," the singer continues. "They were almost exclusively women; Madonna, Destiny’s Child, Alanis Morissette, Britney and Whitney - they asserted or acknowledged their sexuality in varying and different ways and to me they were ways that felt powerful... Women in pop music are expected to be sexy, most of the time they don’t have any choice - I have the privilege of choice."
