New Elvis Perkins Video – “While You Were Sleeping”

Unlike “All The Night Without Love,” there’s no sign of Mr. Perkins’s backing band, Dearland — this one’s meant just for Elvis, casting him as a throwback folkie with full moon eyes, mismatching socks, and excellent penmanship. In the end the sun rises, and though insomnia is never fun, at least Elvis got a powerfully poetic tune out of it. We usually just get bleary eyes and terrible morning breath. It’s another one courtesy of MTV, so apologies to you guys outside of these fifty States. YouTube soon!

Ash Wednesday is out via XL.
