    It's unavailable. I don't know if that's some copyright problems or the video got deleted for some reason.

    Must be based on location. It's the official (USA) link to Singularity

    Just wanted to add something to my previous reply, this is official statement from Dev's FB page about the song:

    "Devin comments: “Here is the video for my Enya influenced, 'commercial' song. I love this type of mid-tempo, big, romantic heavy music. I would love to do a full album in this style somewhere down the line, and it’s the only one of its kind on the Empath record."

    So calm down lad :) it's the only song like that on the album.

    Well, that sucks. It just shows "Video is unavailable" so I don't know for sure if it's a location problem. It is another music video or some kind of documentary?

    It's literally just the album cover and the song.

    I just got through the entire album and I had the stupidest fucking grin on my face the entire time! There’s so much to digest here.

    I'm only halfway through Borderlands and I too have had the stupidest grin on my face. The singles weren't indicative of the best parts of the album at all. Why they didn't release "Sprites" or "Why" as a single is beyond me.

    Agreed, I am only in one listen in and my initial experience is that it is utterly overwhelming.

    First listen left me with a post psychedelic afterglow feeling

    Some amusement park needs to make a ride called “in devs head” it would be the most beautifully terrifying ride ever.

    I haven't processed most of the record yet. All I can say so far is that I think Why is a masterpiece. Amazing writing, gorgeous orchestra and choir arrangement, and some of the most beautiful singing I've heard from Devin. I'm so happy that Devin was able to do this.

    Really wish this were at least a minute shorter, or the tempo was dialed up a hair. Good song overall but it felt a little drawn out.

    I really don't feel the album yet, but holy shit "why?" is such a great song. Funny as hell, cool orchestrations and Devy singing his heart out... What's not to like?

    Also... The orchestrations sometimes remind me of heroes of might and magic 3, which is a huge plus for me :D

    Yeah, these days it really seems that way. Devin has been one of my favorite artists since around year 2000 when I accidentally discovered him, but everything after ghost has been the same stuff all over again (except coc ofcourse!) and it's been a vit disappointing to me. Uninspired stuff. Oh well, I'll have to listen to this new one quite a few times before I judge it. :)

    Just listened through the whole album for the first time. I am comfortably confused. I dont know what just happened.
