Jackson Browne has released the video today for ‘My Cleveland Heart’, his new single, which is out on tomorrow. The single, co-written with his longtime guitarist Val McCallum, comes from Browne’s forthcoming album ‘Downhill From Everywhere’ which lands on July 23rd worldwide through his label Inside Recordings. The ‘My Cleveland Heart’ video, which you can watch below, was directed by Alissa Torvinen and includes a cameo by Phoebe Bridgers along with Browne’s bandmates Val McCallum, Greg Leisz, Jeff Young, Mauricio Lewak, Bob Glaub as well as Pete Thomas and Dave Faragher.
“What an honour to collaborate with Jackson,” said Torvinen on the making of the video. “His creativity is inspiring, not solely in music, but in everything he puts his energy into. We came up with a script for the video very serendipitously, and Phoebe joining us was a wonderful surprise. The way she received Jackson’s heart and the shot of her watching from the wings . . . perfectly dark and poetic and Phoebe.”
“There’s a deep current of inclusion running through this record,” Browne says of the new album. “I think that idea of inclusion, of opening yourself up to people who are different than you – that’s the fundamental basis for any kind of understanding in this world.” Except if their name is Laurence Fox.
