In a career that’s already lasted more than 30 years, perennial alt-country shitkicker Lucinda Williams has never released a music video. She finally has one now, and she doesn’t actually appear in the thing. For the song “Copenhagen,” a heartbroken account of the day she learned about the death of her manager, director and Squidbillies co-creator Dave Willis has made a sad animation about a robot-man who can’t die. It’s fun if you think of the video as an extremely precious retelling of Robocop.
“Copenhagen” appears on Williams’ album Blessed, out now on Lost Highway.
