Kevin Morby has released the new music video for his single ‘Nothing Sacred / All Things Wild’ taken from his forthcoming new album Oh My God.
The official follow-up to his 2017 album City Music, which came with lead single ‘Halo’, is due for release on April 26th. Prior to that release, Morby plans to premiere a short film at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetery which has been directed by Christopher Good.
Similarly, director Good has worked with Morby on the video for ‘Nothing Sacred / All Things Wild’, which can be seen below:
Speaking about the record, Morby said: “Religion is around all of us,” Morby in a press release. “It’s a universal language and there is profound beauty in it. I’ve found it a useful tool within songwriting, as it’s something everyone can relate to on some level. There are religious themes or imagery in a lot of what I’ve done, so I wanted to get all of that out and speak only that language for a whole record. It’s not a born-again thing; it’s more that ‘oh my god’ is such a profound statement we all use multiple times a day and means so many different things. It’s not about an actual god but a perceived one, and it’s an outsider’s view of the human experience in terms of religion.”
“This one feels full circle, my most realised record yet,” he added. “It’s a cohesive piece; all the songs fit under the umbrella of this religious theme. I was able to write and record the album I wanted to make. It’s one of those marks of a life: this is why I slept on floors for seven years. I’ve now gotten the keys to my own little kingdom, and I’m devoting so much of my life to music that I just want to keep it interesting. At the end of the day, the only thing I don’t want is to be bored. If someone wants to get in my face about writing a non-religious religious record? Thank god. That’s all I gotta say.”
