The Skinny: Blue Rodeo is on the verge of releasing their new album In Our Nature (October 29th) and we’re happy to share this premiere of their new video for the songs “New Morning Sun” and “Mattawa”. When award winning director Chris Mills was asked to film a video for the first single from Blue Rodeo’s new album he was given the task to come up with something unique that incorporated two of the albums songs, “New Morning Sun” and “Mattawa.” Instead, what he delivered was an extraordinary film that incorporated most of the music from ‘In Our Nature’. “After spending close time with the band, shooting and rehearsing all these great songs,” says Mills, “The idea developed to try to make a video that encapsulated the feel for the ALBUM rather than just the songs. I shared this with the team, and was encouraged to ‘run with it.'”
