The music video is set to debut on Thursday night but before that, fans can take a peek at the making of the video through behind-the-scene footage.
Contemporary artist Marco Brambilla who directs Kanye West's "Power" music video teases what people should expect from the upcoming clip in a form of a behind-the-scene footage. The sneak peek is released in anticipation of the full video which is set to premiere Thursday night, August 5 on MTV after "Jersey Shore".
Titled "From Civilization to Power", the footage features Marco's voice as he describes technique and message behind the video. Beside offering commentaries from the director, it has nudity and other explicit contents, making it not safe for work.
"This is a highly constructed, highly mannered, somewhat religious tabla that communicates the end of an empire," Marco said. For those who don't know, he additionally explained that his "work often deals with the seduction and the alienation present in contemporary culture."
