Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats - "Bless My Soul" (video) (premiere)

The Idaho band explore love and loss in their new video.

Boise, Idaho Americana band Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats are set to release their fourth album Bless My Soul this month, and in the meantime have released a video for the title track, which you can see below.

"'Bless My Soul' is the story of a conversation between a man and a woman, overheard echoing off the dirt floors and through the pine boards of an old cabin," Warren explains. "It isn't the song but this feeling director James Hansen explores digging into the darker side of human nature and the Billy Goats' music, portraying love, loss, the light and the dark."
