The 49-year-old actress, who was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Queen Elizabeth in the 2010 film 'The King's Speech', is best-known for her role as Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter series, but she's swapped her acting roles to become a wildlife narrator for the 'urban jungle' in the music video.
As the camera pans around a tower block, the distinctive strings of the track kick in and the focus is on a pair of dancers dressed as a urban tropical bird, engaging in an originally choreographed sequence of a stylised 'mating dance' ritual.

Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo has stepped up his anti-fracking campaign by issuing a stark warning to U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron over the issue.
The Avengers star is vehemently opposed to the controversial gas extraction method amid fears it could damage the environment, and he previously lobbied to have it banned in New York.
Now Ruffalo has turned his attention to the U.K., where a number of new fracking sites are planned, and he has urged Cameron not to back the proposals.
"Mr Cameron, you're making an enormous mistake, and it's a legacy mistake. Because there's no fracking that can be done safely," he declares during a video interview with environmental campaign group Friends of the Earth. "Your people don't want it. You've already told them once before that if they didn't want it, you wouldn't push them to take it, and you're turning back on your word, sir. And what is a politician if he's not credible..."

Alice once again returns to Wonderland and meets a lot of familiar faces. This time her biggest enemy is Time, quite literally. As the Blue Caterpillar reminds her, 'You've been gone too long, Alice there are matters that might benefit from your attention. Friends cannot be neglected.' Instead of falling down a rabbit hole, this time Alice gains entry to wonderland through a large mirror which takes her to a topsy-turvy universe which could only be associated with Wonderland. There appear to be a few differences between the book and the new film; whilst Lewis Carol's original version of the book was based six months after the original tale, the inclusion of Time might mean that Linda Woolverton's version make time travel much quicker in Wonderland. Again, Carol used many chess analogies in the book, at the moment its unknown how much this will play a part in the movie. The majority of the lead cast from Tim Burton's 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland including Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. Alice Through The Looking Glass was directed by James Bobbin who previously worked on the 2011 Muppets film and Muppets Most Wanted.
Based on real events a century ago that still resonate loudly today, this movie takes a cleverly fictionalised angle to explore the suffrage movement, a story that astonishingly has never been put on film before. Screenwriter Abi Morgan's script brings intelligence and honesty to the characters, avoiding cliches to make the political statements as fresh and important today as they were back then. And it's anchored by another solid performance from Carey Mulligan.
She plays Maud, a young woman in 1912 London who has grown up working in a grim laundry, which is where she met her husband Sonny (Ben Whishaw). Then her best friend Violet (Anne-Marie Duff) introduces her to the women's voting rights movement led by Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep). And Maud is intrigued, joining with her local chemist's wife Edith (Helena Bonham Carter) for protests and getting involved in civil disobedience. This puts her on the list of offenders followed by a tenacious policeman (Brendan Gleeson), and Sonny finds it very difficult to cope with the embarrassment. So Maud has to make a very tough decision about whether to carry on the fight.
Making the film's main characters working-class heroines was a clever way to draw in modern-day audiences. In real life, the suffragettes were middle-class women who didn't particularly want any of the working class (men or women) to have the vote. But of course, once the movement started, it didn't end there, ultimately extending right through society. And the film cleverly mixes these fictional characters alongside real historical figures to bring the events vividly to life. Mulligan provides the emotional gut punch as an intelligent but uneducated woman who has been abused all her life and is finally standing up for herself. Her scenes with each of the supporting cast have real power, including less sympathetic characters like Whishaw's loving but fearful husband.

Carey Mulligan And Helena Bonham Carter Are Delighted A Group Of Women Staged A Red Carpet Protest At The London Premiere Of Suffragette On Wednesday (07oct15).
The actresses star alongside Meryl Streep in the new movie, which charts the early struggles of the battle for women's rights.
The issue was thrust to the fore when a dozen demonstrators stormed the London unveiling on Wednesday and sprawled on the red carpet to express their anger over a U.K government plan to cut funding for domestic violence services.
Carey and Helena missed the big moment as they were not outside the cinema at the time, but they spoke out after the drama to praise the women for their bravery.

Helena Bonham Carter and Carey Mulligan have praised domestic violence protesters for disrupting the UK premiere of their new film, 'Suffragette'.

But Helena told Sky News: ''I think it's marvellous. That is exactly what the suffragettes were about.
