– Steve Martin and Edie Brickell's new music video for "Won't Go Back,"
debuted today on VanityFair.com.
The song is featured on their forthcoming new studio album , "So Familiar," due Oct. 30 on Rounder. Produced by Peter Asher, the album features 12 new songs.
"This video, three years in the making, was a delight to work on," Martin said to VanityFair.com. "Especially wonderful to work with was "hey you," (our director), and "hey you," (our costumer), and I am deeply indebted to "hey you," (the woman who sang)."
The duo's sophomore album, draws on a wide range with players from the worlds of bluegrass, folk, pop and rock. Banjo man Béla Fleck is featured on "Heart of the Dreamer," along with session bassist Leland Sklar, Cobra Starship's Victoria Asher, Mike Einziger of Incubus, Emmy-award winning composer/arranger Geoff Zanelli, and Martin's longtime bluegrass cohorts the Steep Canyon Rangers.
Martin and Brickell also have an original, Broadway-bound musical, "Bright Star," which has been produced in San Diego and will open at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 17 before heading to Broadway in spring 2016.
