Taking a page out of Dierks Bentley’s book, Zac Brown Band will be releasing three extended music videos set to songs off their 2015 album Jekyll + Hyde. When viewed together, the videos comprise a mini-movie.
The band released part one, “Remedy,” today (June 14). The other songs that will be featured in the short film are “Tomorrow Never Comes” and “I’ll Be Your Man (Song for a Daughter).”
The nearly seven minute video was written and directed by Diego Pernia, and focuses on a young lady trying to help her alcoholic mother. Things reach a boiling point between the two and the mother insists her daughter leave her alone. She does, driving off in the family pickup truck and embarking on her own troubled journey.
Even though Zac Brown Band’s song “Remedy” forms the backbone of the first part, it bleeds through the video as if relegated to the background. The focus is on the visual narrative and the band’s song only comes in waves to highlight certain moments.
“It gives a story and a life to each one of these songs,” Brown told Rolling Stone Country regarding the project.
The video for “Tomorrow Never Comes” will be released Friday, June 17th. Watch “Remedy” below.
