Pharrell and Gwen Stefani's bear-centric video for 'Shine' from the Paddington film has been released online. 

The lyric video for the Peruvian orsine fable is now online, featuring an extensive look at the film and absolute none of the track's performers.

The video shows sections from the film featuring Paddington getting up to all sorts of antics (yes we get to see him go down in the stairs in a bathtub), alongside the song's lyrics. What's interesting is how closely the style of the video mimics that of Williams' previous chart topping single 'Happy' from Despicable Me 2

Williams himself said of the track 'What a wonderful opportunity, as a parent, to contribute to something as classic, authentic and generational to all of our lives, as Paddington Bear.' 

Pharrell Williams will be performing at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on Friday 12 June 2015. Tickets are on sale now. Buy tickets here
