The song / music video Slow Dancing In The Dark by the Japanese-Australian musician Joji from his 2018 music album Ballads 1:
Here is how Wikipedia describes this song / music video:
“Slow Dancing in the Dark” (stylized in all caps) is a song by Japanese-Australian singer-songwriter Joji.
It is the second single from his debut album, Ballads 1.
The song was written and produced by Joji and Patrick Wimberly.
The song was chosen as BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World for 18 September 2018.
A music video for the song was released the same day.
Directed by Jared Hogan, the video features Miller in a white tuxedo smoking a cigarette and stumbling through city streets at night in emotional anguish.
Later in the video, he is revealed to be a satyr with an arrow in his back.
He coughs up blood while splayed on an illuminated dance floor.
He eventually collapses in a pool of blood.
The final frame is used in the song’s cover artwork.
The video’s visual style has been compared to that of director David Fincher.
