Dutch techno musician Junkie XL, known as Tom Holkenborg in real life, released his latest album 'Synthesized' late last year and has now offered up his third single from the record.

“Leave Behind Your Ego” feat. Timothy Leary is a classic big beat, techno tune with spoken word vocals from ‘60s icon Timothy Leary. The stunning video was directed by John Christopher Pina (Kanye West, John Legend, Seal, Common) and features striking images that change and flow in perfect time to the music. Pina says the video is “carefully constructed sound meets meticulously chosen imagery in illuminating the haunting words of Leary through a transmigration from the walls and pathways of ever-present modern technology, down through the mirror of chaos in man-made structures, and through to the abstract serenity of nature.”
