Jolie Holland & Samantha Parton’s New Music Video – ‘You Are Not Needed Now’

Watch the premiere via The Boot

Jolie Holland & Samantha Parton’s official video for their re-imagining of the Townes Van Zandt song “You Are Not Needed Now” has premiered on The Boot. Director, Anthony Frattolillo, states that “when we were brainstorming ideas for the music video, Sam mentioned the song has always evoked heaven for her. And then it clicked for me, that a highway rest stop is symbolic of a kind of limbo or layover for lost souls. I imagined following one lost soul – a drifter stuck in this state of nowhere, watching people come and go, waiting for a ride before darkness falls. And when he finally gets picked up at the end, to be lifted away from this sort of limbo, he puts his hat over his chest and lies down in the flatbed of the truck… as if he’s coming to his final resting place— at peace.”

Their new album, Wildflower Blues, was released on September 8 with a US tour kicking off this November. The album has held the #1 spot on NACC Folk Charts two weeks in a row.
