He was inspired to write Monster because of the bravery of other people that chose to speak publicly.
"Monster is a song about freedom", explains Clapson.
"Being able to say that I was sexually abused as a boy makes me feel free. Writing a song about it makes me feel free.
"Picturing the guy that did it as a fragile person makes me feel free. Forgiving him makes me feel free. Not worrying about how people will interpret that makes me feel free.
"Releasing the burden of keeping this to myself, almost as a shameful secret makes me feel free."
The dance performance was choreographed and performed by former gymnast Jade Capua, who herself experienced sexual abuse.
"The video is a collaboration with other survivors. The song came about after several conversations with other people that had similar experiences.
"One of those people was Jade Capua who was a huge inspiration speaking publicly about her experience.
"I have been blown away by the amount of people that got in touch to share their experiences and also to Alice, Carl, Jade, Michael and Nicole who were all in the video itself.
"Speaking about sexual abuse can make people feel uncomfortable but the reality is that it is a common occurrence and it is important people feel safe talking about it."
The song is taken from his forthcoming new EP entitled Mole Hill Green, which tackles social themes close to his heart.
The EP is available from Nettwerk and is named after the village where Clapson grew up in Essex. CLICK HERE for more info.
