"Set You Free" is a song written and recorded by the English group N-Trance, featuring vocals from Kelly Llorenna. It was first released as a white label record in 1992, it was re-released in January 1995 and became a chart hit. Later it was remixed and re-released in 2001.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by prolific music video director Steve Price and shot in various locations in County Durham and North Yorkshire. The video comprises scenes of the band dancing and singing in a nightclub, in front of Cliffords Tower in York, England and travelling in a stretched limousine. The scene at Cliffords Tower was fortuitously or coincidentally shot on 3 November 1994,[2] which coincided with an annual Guy Fawkes Night Fireworks display organised by York City Council. The nightclub scenes were shot at Bianco's, Stockton-on-Tees.[2][3] It is claimed that the video cost around £5,000 to make.[citation needed]

In 2001, the video was re-edited for the Rob Searle Radio Edit.
