Night Beds Announce Debut Album ‘Country Sleep,’ New Music Video Premieres Today at NPR

Night Beds announce the release of debut record, Country Sleep. The ten-track album represents a period of uncertainty and the escape Winston Yellen found in writing each song, done in an environment where personal limits were often tested. Where days blurred into nights and mornings signified a certain safety, Winston fought to find some sanity, some equal ground to come to terms with the months prior to his arrival in Nashville and occupancy of the late Johnny Cash and June Carter’s home. Country Sleep is set for release on February 5, 2013.

 
Premiering this morning at NPR’s All Songs Considered, it is the brand new video for Night Bed’s gorgeous single “Even If We Try.” Called “a languid gem of a song paired with very disturbing video” by Bob Boilen, the video takes the viewer on a dark and incredibly uncomfortable journey as the main character, played by Winston, quickly falls apart at a party. Director Rick Alverson chose to pair the beautiful, heartbreaking song with something equally moving, although in a much different way. Watch “Even If We Try” above.

Stay in the know with Night Beds. Follow Winston on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Dead Oceans Welcomes Night Beds to the Family, “Even If We Try” 7″ Out Tomorrow

We are incredibly excited to welcome Night Beds to the Dead Oceans family. Led by 23-year old songwriter, Winston Yellen, Night Beds hail from Nashville, TN by way of Colorado Springs. Winston boasts a new, great American voice with a specific brand of intimate thirst that few musicians possess.

Today, we get the pleasure of hearing Night Beds’ first single “Even If We Try.” It’s only fitting this stunning single was recorded in the former Hendersonville home of country-music legend, Johnny Cash.
