One of the videos we missed while sipping nog and sleeping off NYE was the Glasto (and possibly Bonnaroo)-bound Boss’s clip for “Life Itself,” from his forthcoming Working On A Dream. The “Life Itself” clip follows up on “My Lucky Day“‘s shot of the E Streeters in the studio with an in-and-out of focus Bruce, again in recording mode, strumming and singing with gravitas. It’s a sad relationship song, but the imagery seems to build off of the line that reads “Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart,” screening shots of stone-faced Americans in all their diversity while white picket fences and elm trees and shadows of birds in flight dissolve in and out of frame. Heavy things.
Download the song for free at Amazon. Working On A Dream is out 1/27 via Columbia. Also remember Bruce wrote a Golden Globe-nominated song for The Wrestler, which is a truly awesome movie.
