Giving fans a taste of his upcoming record Sad and Beautiful World (out Sept. 24 via Wicked Cool Records), Jesse Malin has shared a brand new music video for the single “State of the Art.”
According to Malin, the album was written and recorded in his native New York City, between 2020 and 2021 and it takes its title from the Jim Jarmusch movie, Down by Law.
Discussing the “State of the Art” video, Malin says, “The band and I reunited for the first time outside of New York City at a historic mansion in Staten Island. It was fun to go somewhere I didn’t even think existed. We went for the Kubrick, Barry Lyndon, Wes Anderson look… This is a statement about how isolated we’ve been, and getting lost in all the distractions that can be filtered into our homes while we’re overselling ourselves.”
