Mark Clennon releases a music video for Don’t Start A Fire and announces a new EP

Mark Clennon presents a music video for Don’t Start A Fire, a poignant new single released in November 2020, following his sophomore EP Passion (2019). This is also the Toronto crooner’s first song off his upcoming EP Foreign, due out March 19th via Bonsound. The EP is available to pre-order now.

Through the lens of Montreal-based director Christian Boakye-Agyeman, the music video, which premiered earlier today via Afropunk and Exclaim!, sees Clennon working through emotions and feelings while dancing and singing alone in his apartment, like a madman. I wanted to be in the place where I felt the most comfortable in the world and that’s my apartment, it’s also the space where the events that inspired me to write the song took place, says the future-soul artist about the images that accompany his words.

On Don’t Start A Fire, the Toronto-based artist explores relationship ambiguity and the far too common phenomenon of playing with another person’s feelings. Inspired by his own experience of being strung along through a one-sided relationship, this song encapsulates what the Jamaican-born musician is all about, using his powerful, touching voice to honestly sing over this sweeping track.

Clennon’s upcoming EP Foreign is his most honest project to date. This collection of original tracks and remixes sees him fully embrace his outsider-ness, while highlighting his struggle to balance his Jamaican roots with his Canadian background. With the help of his musical sidekicks, production duo Rainer + Grimm (The Weeknd’s Wicked Games and Drake’s Shot For Me), and Joey Sherrett (Nate Husser), he explores themes of belonging, relationship ambiguity, the deconstruction of stereotypes, and authenticity.
