It exposes the horrible reality of ICE...

Jessie Reyez has shared the moving new video for her single 'Far Away'.

The Canadian born star is currently working on her new album, which is slated to drop sometime in 2020.

Right now, though, she's tackling societal issues, with her single 'Far Away' receiving a moving visual.

It features two loves separated at the US-Mexico border, demonstrating the human impact that projects such as ICE can have.

A glimpse of reality in the pop sphere, it clearly comes from a highly personal place for Jessie. She comments:

"Attachment. Attachment to someone is both something beautiful and something painful. Imagine finally finding your home in another human being but they’re stuck on the other side of this rock we’re all on. You’re left wanting nothing more than a hug - their hug - that simultaneously feels like a pillow and a drug."

"Somehow when they hurt, you hurt, when they smile, you smile. This is love suspended in animation, before it’s tainted by reality (because eventually all hearts break again) but in this moment, neither of you are running from one another - it’s only water and borders and God keeping you apart. Water and borders and God keeping you from home."

"This is pre-heart break; when both sets of lungs are still working and when you miss them and they miss you back- and you feel each other even when you’re far away."
