Kurt Vile has released this first look at Kurt Vile's new video for the excellent "Never Run Away" off of one of this year's best albums, Walkin On A Pretty Daze. Vile can certainly shred, but this song reflects his hazier, chilled out side. Walking On A Pretty Daze is an aptly named album, and this video certainly reflects the overall vibe of most of the record, with Vile shown performing the song in various seemingly random Philly locales dressed in all white and playing a white guitar.
The video was directed by a duo known only as HARRYS, who had this to say about the project:
"We wanted to make a video inspired by some of our favorite iconic album art by these sorts of artists. Neil Young, for example, has some classic videos and his album covers, like On the Beach, served as a jumping off point for us. We wanted Kurt's personality and sense of humor to come through in the video and shot it on 35mm to give it a natural and classic feel."
