Our cups runneth over with Twin Shadow goodness. Hot on the heels of his new record caer, which just dropped last Friday, comes a video for “Saturdays,” a Haim-featuring cut from that album packed with plenty of swing and soul.

Here Twin Shadow pays tribute to not only Petty, Prince, Bowie but also the video stylings of D.A. Pennebaker and Steve Binder. The visual matches the American spirit of "Saturdays," teleporting us perhaps to a simpler time. In the rawness, Twin Shadow croons and strums in the hazy spotlight while starry-eyed fans sit inches away. It's a classic pose, but he pulls it off effortlessly, and his verses about chrome hearts and fault lines feel entirely at home in this idyllic setting. Watch the full video above.
