Leon Bridges and Khruangbin released the video for, “Texas Sun.” The song is the title track for the collaborators’ recently released EP out now via Dead Oceans.

Philip Andelman — who began his career working with Annie Leibovitz, photographed the Grateful Dead and has directed videos for Rihanna, Beyoncé, John Mayer, Jay Z and many more — helmed the video highlighting the stark beauty of the Texas landscape, which Bridges sings about in “Texas Sun.”

“I had never felt this transported by a song, never felt such a powerful need to shoot anything before in my life,” Andelman said in a statement. “We traveled out to East Texas and just started driving, creating our own set of adventures as we went along: meetings with pecan farmers in Van Horn, mezcal dealers in Marfa, ranchers in Valentine. We didn’t have much gear, just a camera, some incandescent bulbs, a tripod and ratchet straps. We fell into a family of friends in Marfa who took us over the finish line, rustling up wardrobes and cars, a neighbor with a home to shoot in, an ex-boyfriend with a drone. Calling this a labor of love would be an understatement, it was the ride of a lifetime.” Watch the video for “Texas Sun” below:
