Slowdive Present Video For “Don’t Know Why” (Dir. Grant Singer) Via Apple Music

Posted on 10/11/2017

Ahead of their forthcoming North American tour, Slowdive are pleased to share their new video for Slowdive cut “Don’t Know Why.” Directed by Grant Singer (The Weeknd, Lorde, Ariana Grande) and starring Autumn Shelly, Duke Nicholson, and Daciana the Dog, the video is presented in three parts:

“This video is less about logic and more about a feeling. It’s a triptych about memory, about being lost and abandoned,” says Singer. “Slowdive has been my favorite band since I was a kid. To say that making this video was surreal would be an understatement. Their music has been this gift – this friend that stays with me always and gets better over time. Hearing their new album left me speechless. So having the opportunity to make something for them is an honor that I don’t take for granted.”

Watch only on Apple Music:

Slowdive’s self-titled album, released this past spring on Dead Oceans to universal acclaim, was their first new record in 22 years. It garnered a slew of praise from the likes of The New Yorker, Vulture, Pitchfork, The Associated Press, SPIN, Newsweek, Billboard, Stereogum, Uproxx, Exclaim, Paste, and more.

The band will tour North America extensively this fall in support of Slowdive, playing many of these cities for the first time since the album’s release. A full list of dates is below.
