Today the Eli Young Band released the new music video for their single “Dust.”
The song is the second single from the band’s recently released album 10,000 Towns.
“I remember we just started with the word ‘dust,’ we wanted to do something with that,” bassist Jon Jones told Radio.com about writing the song. “All four of us in the band have wives who come from very small towns. And I was thinking of my wife, who I feel was always meant to live in a big city. And she always felt that way growing up. So I just had her in my mind — it’s not exactly a love song for her, but she was definitely on my mind when we wrote that song.”
The song and the video for “Dust” bring this person to life. In the video, we see the protagonist alone in a bar. She’s sick of the town she’s living in and the guy she’s dating, so she decides to do something about it: She hops into her car to hit the open road and leave it all behind. Watch it below.
“Dust” is the latest single from the Eli Young Band’s new album 10,000 Towns, which hit stores this March. It follows their recent No. 1 hit “Drunk Last Night.”
“We weren’t afraid to take our time with it,” guitarist James Young told Radio.com about the making of their latest album.
“It was a fun record to make,” echoed lead singer Mike Eli, “but we also knew it was an incredibly important record for our career.”
