Lambchop – “NIV” Video

Next week, the long-running Nashville group Lambchop will release the adventurous, meditative new album FLOTUS. Today, they’ve shared a video for the Auto-Tune hymn “NIV,” and it’s a whole lot more meaningful than most music videos. Director Elise Tyler has used the song to soundtrack a sort of mini-documentary about a homeless couple, living in a tent in the woods in Nashville, trying to earn a better life before their baby is born. It’s a powerful, lyrical, humane look at two people with hard lives. Watch it below.

FLOTUS is out 11/4 on Merge/City Slang. Stream it here.
