Queen drummer Roger Taylor presented the music video for “Isolation” on July 13, 2020. According to the musician in an interview with BBC Radio 6 Music, the track was recorded by him in his shed (or, as he calls it, “room in the garden”) in Cornwall during self-isolation and released in late June 2020.
“I was feeling frustrated and a little anxious about it all, so I just thought I’d write a song about how to fill a day-a routine in isolation,” says Roger. “It’s something we’re not used to. This is a direct reflection of what I felt during the epidemic”.
The video, shot by Animind animation Studio, shows both a drawn Taylor, a coronavirus, a clock and a globe, as well as a video from the time of the epidemic: masked doctors applauding, Italians with flags on their balconies, etc.
