Matt Mahurin directed Sturgill Simpson's new clip, which serves as the first visual from the singer's forthcoming album. The video is filled with reminders of mortality: a tombstone, a skull in a birthday hat, the grim reaper. We're dying to live, living to die, no matter what you believe, sings Simpson. And all of us cry for the ones we must leave.
