Video: Laura Veirs – “Everybody Needs You”
Directed by Lance Bangs. Animation by Marissa Paternoster. From The Lookout, out April 13 on Raven Marching Band.
You might know Laura Veirs from the case/lang/veirs project she did with Neko Case and k.d. lang in 2016. She’s got a new solo album, The Lookout, coming out this spring.
“The Lookout is about the need to pay attention to the fleeting beauty of life and to not be complacent; it’s about the importance of looking out for each other,” says Veirs. “I’m addressing what’s happening around me with the chaos of post-election America and a personal reckoning with the realities of midlife: I have friends who’ve died; I struggle with how to balance life as an artist with parenting young children.”
Reckoning with the realities of midlife. I can certainly dig that.
