Nostalgic, almost dreamy images in Regina Spektor’s new video, “Call Them Brothers” include personal home movie clips that belong to the artist. Directed and photographed by James Holland, the video has a unique style that beckons the viewer to watch and feel the emotion that only “real life” can evoke. Some of the footage was shot using a Super-8 camera by family friend Howard Zuckerman. Watching the video, with its cloudy scenes and jumpy movements was completely enjoyable and reminiscent of an easier, carefree time.
Jack Dishel of Only Son co-wrote “Call Them Brothers” with Spektor and originally released it on his second album, Searchlight in 2011. A much anticipated acoustic version of the song will be available on Spektor’s new digital edition album, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats to be released by Sire/Warner Brothers on May 29.
