Nathaniel Rateliff has released a new video for his song “All Or Nothing.” Rateliff teamed up with Doug Spencer to direct the video. Watch the video below.
Of the video, Spencer notes, “When I first heard ‘All Or Nothing,’ I was seeing images of the circus going from town to town with Nathaniel as the ringleader. From there we built a dream-like world populated by performers, moving landscapes and a little magic using my smoke techniques, projections and animations. A world within a song and a nice escape for the moment.”
Rateliff furthers, “I’ve always loved Doug’s art and how he plays with shadow and light. I had gotten one of his pieces and was looking at it at home and called him to ask if he would want to try using his art to make a video. I love what he came up with and I loved being a part of the process.”
Rateliff and Spencer are longtime friends and members of the close-knit Denver arts community. On Rateliff’s currently suspended And It’s Still Alright tour Spencer’s art was highlighted on a projection throughout the concert. On March 12, while set to play New York’s Town Hall for a two-night run, the tour came to a halt. The band recorded a three-song performance live to an empty audience that afternoon to give fans a glimpse into Rateliff’s set. The video showcases Spencer’s artwork as well as Denver-based photographer Rett Rogers’ work. Watch the performance here: https://bit.ly/2VbEhYI
