In the same year, Dimash presented a music video for the song “Love of Tired Swans”. This track was the beginning of a cooperation between two major Russian music figures — composer Igor Krutoy and poet Mikhail Gutseriev.

Another impressive music video by Dimash Kudaibergen came out in October 2019. The song “Know” is another composition by Igor Krutoy. Alan Badoev was again responsible for the visual part.
In the video, the director once again laid down a philosophical subtext, commenting on what is happening on the screen in the following way:
“An endless circle of relations between a MAN and a WOMAN – from birth, love, eating the sinful fruit and self-destruction. Igor Krutoy and Mikhail Gutseriev laid the idea of an eternal striving for absolute love, and Dimash endowed the souls of two lovers with voices.”
The track starts off calmly, gradually building up in power and becoming more and more emotional. The video, filmed among the unusual landscapes of Iceland at the Skogafoss waterfall, immerses the viewer in a non-trivial world and allows you to convey the intensity of feelings and emotions inherent in the song.
