Sales of tangible music in the form of records are on the rise, giving Amos Lee's video for "The Man Who Wants You" an added layer of relevance. The greater duration of the video features workers in the the factory where his LPs are actually made doing their unglamorous but essential work to bring us the joy of listening to records. The video quality itself feels vintage, scenes fading into flashes of grainy, analog film stock. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Amos Lee discloses of this song, "[It]... was written more as a straight-on country kinda tune, but I wanted to stretch it out of that scene a bit, so I played everyone 'Snatching It Back' by Clarence Carter and it fell into place easily. I always saw that tune as more of a country R&B flavor."

"The Man Who Wants You" and the rest of Amos Lee's album Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song will be released October 8th via Blue Note Records.
