Kevin Morby is back with a brand new track.
Today, Texan shares the first video and single off his forthcoming record, Singing Saw, out 15 April on Dead Oceans.
The video, directed by Phillip Lopez and starring dancer Nathan Mitchell, portrays a man on his deathbed that, upon death, is reborn as an exuberant and jovial presence, performing for no audience in glum surroundings.
“Kevin wanted to embrace the dancing of Nathan,” said Lopez, “and I had remembered a time in the hospital when a man was dying in the bed next to me, and his family was wailing in grief. The moment he died, they were all silent, and i felt as if his soul danced around the place. To me the message of the song resonated with this sort of nostalgic sagely wisdom, that empowers us even in death.”
Track of the day, Kevin Morby:
