C’mon, the shortest title of any Low album to date is officially available on CD/LP and digitally, as of April 12. Comprised of new material written on and off the road, this ten-song set was recorded in a former Catholic church, aka Sacred Heart Studio and co-produced and mixed by Matt Beckley.
Yesterday, www.EW.com premiered the video for Low’s “Try to Sleep” which features actor, John Stamos. Watch the video below. This is what Stamos had to say about how he came to be a part of the video:
“I’m actually good friends with their producer Matt Beckley, and he had played me some of the record while they we’re making it, which I loved. Ironically it turns out I was a big fan of one of their older songs “Cue the Strings”… I’m a sucker for a well written song with great harmonies, and when it came time for them to cast the video, they asked if I’d like to be involved, I liked the concept I was happy to be a part of it. The new record is on all the time at my place. One of my favorite indie bands.”
