Damien Jurado Debuts Haunting, Black + White Video for "Arkansas"

In between releasing Saint Bartlett and touring with Kay Kay & Weathered Underground, Damien Jurado found time to create this completely haunting, black and white video for "Arkansas," his new album's first single.

The video follows a narrative arc that is only tangentially connected to the song's lyrics. Jurado is singing about losing someone he love, but in the video, this is taken one step further. Jurado (or the character he plays) has apparently murdered someone and is haunted by that person's ghost while trying to bury the body. This is some dark stuff, but the faded images and tormented main character match the haunted and stark tone of Saint Bartlett.
