Jess Williamson releases a magical one-shot video for “Time Ain’t Accidental,” the title track and opener from Williamson’s highly anticipated new album, out June 9th via Mexican Summer.
”The lyrics to ‘Time Ain’t Accidental’ came pouring out of me because it’s the true story of a very special day when I was falling in love with the person who is now my partner. The chorus references a Raymond Carver book of short stories I was reading at the time, and to me the song itself feels like a short story. For the video, we wanted to make the album cover come to life. We shot it in one take on Pinto Canyon Road outside of Marfa, Texas during a storm. That specific stretch of highway is really special to me, because when I was working on the record I would go on long walks down this empty road listening back to my mixes and working out the album sequence. When I’m out there alone I feel like the only person inside of a vast painting, it’s surreal, and I wanted to share that feeling with the world,” says Williamson.
Williamson is currently on the road in support of Time Ain’t Accidental through June 17th.
