Here's part two of our countdown to the new Blue Rodeo album, called In Our Nature, out Tuesday, Oct. 29. Earlier in the week, you could stream the whole album on this site. Now, here's a sneak peak at the brand new video for the first single from the album, also coming out next week. Actually it's for a couple of songs, New Morning Sun and Mattawa. And in fact, filmmaker Chris Mills came up with a unique concept that incorporated most of the music from the album into the video. He explains how that came about: "After spending close time with the band, shooting and rehearsing all these great songs," says Mills, "The idea developed to try to make a video that encapsulated the feel for the ALBUM rather than just the songs. I shared this with the team, and was encouraged to "run with it". "Thankfully, the support and resources were in a place to help me expand and evolve the project, and so, we now have a "music video" style project, which condenses two songs and a few of the narrative elements which THEN ties back into a completely separate, (much longer) ALBUM FILM, which uses mood, performance, a bit of imagination, and a mixture of real life and story elements to try to reflect the great spirit of these sessions, and to deliver a "sampler plate" of this well-crafted album." "I hope that, like me, this sampler will leave you hungry for more, and help remind people that, although loving music one or two songs at a time is awesome, there are also great rewards that come from the experience of taking part in some of the relationships that a collection of songs have with one another." Hear, hear! We agree wholeheartedly with those sentiments. You're going to have a chance to watch the whole film on Monday at this site, but for now, check out this teaser video:
