Robyn Hitchcock’s has shared a new video for “August Sunglasses” which premiered at American Songwriter. Starring Gillian Welch and shot on location in East Nashville, the video was devised, directed, filmed and edited by Jeremy Dylan.
Of the video, Hitchcock says, “This song was written and set in Sydney, but the mood was just right this September in East Nashville. Gillian Welch, Harlowe Quinn from the 5-Spot (glimpsed onstage there with his band Prayer Flags), and Tubby my Scottish Fold cat are all local characters; they helped Jeremy Dylan and I crystallize the feel of summer turning to autumn here in Tennessee.”
Hitchcock continues to tour in support of his acclaimed 21st studio recording and first-ever eponymous release. U.S. solo dates resume January 12, with an appearance at the 30A Songwriters Festival and includes stops in Athens, GA at 40 Watt Club to City Vineyard at Pier 26 in New York.
Robin Hitchcock will play two Cambridge dates this May. The Friday 18th May date sold out almost instantly but tickets for the Thursday 17th are still available here.
