Music video

The accompanying music video for "Sun Goes Down" was made in September 2014 by director Lilja and shows various protagonists in different places all over Europe. The video is a collage of intimate everyday moments that couldn’t be more different. However, one thing that they all share is the moment in which time seems to stand still and let the world take a deep breath.

Filmed in four locations around Europe, the video features actress and model Milla Puolakanaho in Turku, Finland, a group of friends around cinematographer Karol Łakomiec and singer Kasia Zielińska on a rooftop in Warsaw, Poland, terra-cotta artist Dino Daddiego in the old town of Sassi di Matera, Italy, as well as both artists of the song, Robin Schulz and Jasmine Thompson in London, England. The gathering of Jasmine Thompson and her friends was shot in Burgess Park in Southwark, the DJ set with Robin Schulz was shot during a regular gig of his at the club EGG LDN.

The aerials were filmed by Markus Gelhard of Zebraworkz on location in Turku and Matera.

The total length of the video is two minutes and fifty-four seconds. The video was released on October 1, 2014 on Robin Schulz’s YouTube channel[3] and has received more than 280 million views as of November 2017.[4]
