The stunning video was shot on location in Cambodia and directed by Kristian Berg, one of the main architects behind the Walker of Walker universe of content. This is the newest installment in the World of Walker saga, a story told through the audiovisual universe of music videos which launched with his massive single “Faded.” The Walker video trilogy includes today’s “Heading Home,” following “On My Way (ft. Sabrina Carpenter & Farruko)” and “Alone Pt II” (ft. Ava Max).
Elaborating on the story behind the single, Alan Walker says:
“Right after releasing ‘Faded’ in 2015, I started this demo project called ‘Heading Home.’ I performed it live once, but I’ve been working on several edits ever since, and never actually released it. Just based on that live performance, it soon became a fan favourite among Walkers. They’ve kept requesting for it to be released, so it’s great to finally get it out. I also want to give a little treat to those Walkers who have been asking for this song for years now, which is why I’m releasing the original demo as well!”
