Watch Sturgill Simpson’s Mesmerising New Video For The Promise + UK Tour Announced

Napoleon Dynamite fans may recognise The Promise as being that song soundtracking the film’s closing scene. 80s New Wave aficionados may simply know it for being Manchester band, When In Rome‘s lone US hit single. Either way, Sturgill Simpson takes it apart and puts it back together in a distinctly non-New Wave type way. And hell is it good.

Go ahead and allow yourself to be transfixed by Sturgill in this brand new video for, you guessed it, The Promise, premiering now via NPR: http://www.npr.org/event/music/323027239/sturgill-simpson-the-promise

Alongside the unveiling of this fabulous new video, we have the exciting news announce that Sturgill will be bringing his full band over to the UK for the first time this October. Tickets are on sale now!
