Jen Cloher – “Forgot Myself” Video (Feat. Courtney Barnett)

Jen Cloher has been making music for more than two decades, and later this year she’ll release her latest, a self-titled album that’s being introduced with a video for lead single and opening track “Forgot Myself.” Cloher’s wife Courtney Barnett plays guitar on the song and is featured in the Annelise Hickey-directed video, which takes place at a diner as Cloher continually observes situations that double over on themselves, creating for a disorienting effect. It fits the mood of the song, which is a disassociating slacker anthem whose lyrics nod to Patti Smith and the Rolling Stones. “You want to be with your partner celebrating big moments in their life but at the same time, you have your own life to live thousands of miles away,” Cloher explained to NPR. “It’s easy to stop taking care of yourself. Easy to forget yourself.” Watch and listen below.
