My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James will release The Order Of Nature, a collaborative album with Teddy Abrams and the Louisville Orchestra on Decca Gold October 18. James and company unveiled a video for the LP’s lead single, “Set It To Song.”

The Order Of Nature was recorded live on April 7, 2018 at the Louisville Orchestra’s annual Festival of American Music without any overdubs. Some of the nine tracks are reworked arrangements of tunes from Jim’s solo repertoire while others are brand new. “The core idea to me is trying to reflect on the fact that nature doesn’t know how to hate,” James explained of the words on the LP. “Humans are part of nature obviously, but why do we have this thing called hatred and how do we get rid of it? We’re fighting nature and thinking we can prevail over nature, but we’re killing each other and killing the planet.”

Silvia Grav served as both director and DP for the video, which features choreography by Genna Moroni. Watch the “Set It To Song” video below:
