Jesse Harris is a longtime New York music-scene insider, and he’ll probably be rich forever just on the strength of writing Norah Jones’s “Don’t Know Why.” But Harris also has a career of his own, and his song “I Won’t Wait” features guest backing-howls from Conor Oberst and guitar work from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner. The smoky retro track has a smoky retro black-and-white video, shot on an iPhone, in which a model drapes herself all over Harris. Lyle Owerko directs. Watch it below.
Harris’s album Sub Rosa is out 7/31 on Dangerbird.
