Devin Townsend is set to release ‘Empath – The Ultimate Edition’ on June 5th, 2020, and today a brand new video for the track ‘Sprite’ has been launched. This video is part of some of the brand new visuals that make up the accompaniment to Devin’s stunning 5.1 mix that is contained on this new version of ‘Empath’, and was created by Crystal Spotlight.
