Nathaniel Rateliff Releases ‘Time Stands’ Video
Nathaniel Rateliff shared the video for his song “Time Stands.” The track appears on Rateliff’s 2020 solo album, And It’s Still Alright.
The solo effort from Rateliff arrived on February 14, 2020 via Stax Records and was a tribute to longtime Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats producer and collaborator Richard Swift. But the song “Time Stands” took on another meaning as stay at home orders went into place around the coronavirus pandemic. Rateliff tapped Rhett Rogers to create the video and the filmmaker tackled the challenge of making a music video during quarantine. Rogers shared the experience in a statement.
Read Rogers’ words below:
The global pandemic we are facing has implemented distance – distance from our loved ones far away, distance from people out in the world and distance from the life we once knew. The only way we could film during lockdown was without a crew and drone cinematography can be filmed by a single operator while emphasizing the separation inherent to this moment. People across the world are singularly experiencing this new sense of space and I wanted to document that – from bridges in Nigeria and abbeys in Scotland to the outback of Australia and skyscrapers of Sao Palo, from an empty shopping district in Tokyo to lonely Southern California beaches, silent streets of Santo Domingo and great solitude of the Colorado Rockies. The space within the recording of “Time Stands” fills the vast landscapes, image and song reflecting upon time, detachment and balance.
