Chelsea Wolfe shares video for her new single ‘Highway’

Chelsea Wolfe has released the official visuals for her new single ‘Highway’.

The song arrives as the latest effort to be taken from Wolfe’s most recent studio album, Birth Of Violence, which was released in September last year through Sargent House Records.

“I’ve been blessed to work with both Ben Chisholm and Kristin Cofer for many years now as creative collaborators,” Wolfe said of the most recent material. “Ben sometimes does something called ‘grave-hunting,’ searching for graves for people online who are looking for their relatives in far-away cemeteries.

“Kristin and I went along with him one day last spring to a hidden graveyard in a small mountain town and I brought my guitar along. We searched, and filmed, and played some music for those who’ve passed on.”

Wolfe added: “The feel of the video was inspired by some footage I stumbled upon of Joni Mitchell from a 1966 French-Canadian TV show, after I had already written Highway, but the feel was just so sweet and natural and free, and I wanted to bring that to life for my own song as well, since Joni has been such a big inspiration for me since childhood.”
