We’re only five days away from Brother Ali’s forthcoming All the Beauty in This Whole Life album, and to further excite us is his brand-new video for “Never Learn.”

A track about staying true to honorable foundations, its bright elements are match by the illuminated video shot on location at New Mexico’s Dar Al Islam.

Scenery-wise, if the American Muslim worship center looks familiar, you might be having flashbacks to Tupac’s “I Wonder If Heaven Got a Ghetto” video. Also familiar are Minneapolis’ own Al Taw’am dancers, who appeard in Ali’s 2012 video for “Mourning in America.”

Directed by Kron (Prof’s “Motel,” Atmosphere’s “Ringo“) the clip captures Dar Al Islam’s vastness and majesty, allowing for Ali’s words to have that much more contextual power.

For more on Ali’s new album, check him out stopping by Mr. Peter Parker’s show this Friday, May 5.
