Clip was filmed in "a hidden graveyard in a small mountain town".
Later this month, Chelsea Wolfe will hit the road in Europe and the U.K. in support of her 2019 critically acclaimed mostly acoustic album, Birth of Violence, and head of those dates, she's offered up the gorgeous music video for LP standout "Highway."
"I've been blessed to work with both Ben Chisholm and Kristin Cofer for many years now as creative collaborators," Wolfe commented. "Ben sometimes does something called 'grave-hunting,' searching for graves for people online who are looking for their relatives in faraway cemeteries. Kristin and I went along with him one day last spring to a hidden graveyard in a small mountain town and I brought my guitar along. We searched, and filmed, and played some music for those who've passed on. The feel of the video was inspired by some footage I stumbled upon of Joni Mitchell from a 1966 French-Canadian TV show, after I had already written 'Highway,' but the feel was just so sweet and natural and free, and I wanted to bring that to life for my own song as well, since Joni has been such a big inspiration for me since childhood."
Wolfe's imminent European and U.K. dates will see her joined by Tribulation guitarist and solo artist Jonathan Hultén — see the full itinerary below.
