Kevin Morby Shares Video for New Song ‘A Random Act of Kindness’

    ‘A Random Act of Kindness’ is the latest offering from Kevin Morby’s upcoming album, This Is a Photograph, following ‘Rock Bottom’ and the title track. The single comes with an accompanying video directed by Christopher Good. Watch and listen below.

    “In ‘A Random Act Of Kindness’ I set out to write a song where each line could be interpreted in two completely different ways,” Morby explained in a statement. “For example; when I sing the words ‘out of trust…’ it could be heard as either I have lost my sense of trust in something or that I am committing an act with trust as my motive. It’s a song about the menacing nature of the sun rising during a dark time in one’s life only to further illuminate their pain and suffering – and how during these periods it is often the selfless acts of strangers that keeps a person going.”

    He continued: “Sonically I am so proud and surprised by where we ended up with this one. Producer Sam Cohen and I had set out to make a sort of windows-down-mid-tempo-cruiser and somehow, with weeks of exploration, made a sonic rocket ship that shoots you out into outer space over the course of 4 minutes.”

    This Is a Photograph is set for release on May 13 via Dead Oceans.
