Last week, the veteran singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega returned with Lover, Beloved: Songs From An Evening With Carson McCullers, an album composed entirely of songs that she wrote for her off-Broadway play about her love for the writer Carson McCullers. Today, she’s made a video for its gentle, lilting single “We Of Me.” Directed by Chuck Moore, the video consists almost entirely of glossy shots of Vega on a soundstage somewhere, which means it relies entirely on Vega’s charisma to make it watchable. Thankfully, that charisma is undimmed. Watch it below.
Lover, Beloved is out now on Vega’s own Amanuensis Productions label.
