Kevin Morby released the video for “Don’t Underestimate Midwest American Sun.” The song appears on the Kansas City-based singer-songwriter’s 2020 album, Sundowner.

The new record arrived on October 16 via Dead Oceans. The video for “Don’t Underestimate Midwest American Sun” is the third in a trilogy of Sundowner visuals and is a counterpart to the video for “Campfire.”

Morby spoke aobut the inspiration behind the video in a statement. Read his words below:

At the time of writing the album, it felt like Katie [Crutchfield] and I were the only two people on earth – living out in suburban Kansas away from the chaos of our lives on the road and on the coasts and our days became very childlike and innocent: riding bikes, making up games and singing songs. When we found ourselves back in a similar environment due to the lockdown, and it came time to make videos, I wanted to depict our lives in solitude from when I wrote the album.
