New Music | Shovels & Rope - St. Anne's Parade

There’s a whole lot of anticipation building for the new album, Little Seeds, and it goes without saying that we are pretty big fans of Shovels & Rope, so it’s my pleasure to be able to share with you the lovely video for the new single, “St. Anne’s Parade,” which premiered over on NPR this morning.

The song is a beautiful tribute to life itself, as in you should realize it’s all too brief a moment so make the time you have count. With a gentle mandolin strumming the two sing into an old-timey microphone while images of a wedding march for friends of Hearst and Trent, taken during the annual Carnival parade in New Orleans, are woven in. The video was filmed by The Moving Picture Boys, the same company that created the fantastic 2014 documentary on the band.

It’s touching and bittersweet. A reminder to keep your loved ones close to your heart.

Little Seeds will be released October 7th on New West Records and you can pre-order here.
