Jess Williamson and Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield have shared ‘Hurricane’, the final single from their upcoming Plains album I Walked With You A Ways – out this Friday, October 14 via ANTI-. Following earlier cuts ‘Abilene’ and ‘Problem With It’, the track arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Saturday Night Live‘s Aidy Bryant. Check it out below.
“I had always had a vision of Aidy’s involvement in this video that really ended with just getting her in the room,” Crutchfield said in a statement. “I trusted that she had the answer for the perfect way to visually accompany this song and from the jump she just deeply understood our vision, at moments better than we could have even explained it ourselves. I’m thrilled that she was so generous with her time and creative energy and I’m thrilled with how this turned out.”
“’Hurricane’ was the last song that was written for our record,” Williamson added. “We knew we needed one more, and when Katie brought Hurricane to the table we both knew the album was complete. It was incredible for me to watch this song reveal itself; from the early moments of Katie playing it for me on an acoustic guitar just days before we went to make the album, and then blossoming in the studio with the band into this total banger with huge choruses. Aidy’s video is the perfect companion for this tune, and we had a blast working with her and her team to make the visual world for this one come to life.”
“I’ve been a fan of Waxahatchee and Jess Williamson for a long time so when Katie asked if I would direct a music video for Plains I jumped at the chance,” Bryant commented. “We had a talented, hardworking crew and paid homage to Loretta Lynn’s 70’s TV performances. I’m also going to drive the bus for their tour, so see you on the road!”
