Black Mountain very recently performed “The Hair Song” on France’s Canal Plus, and it’s awesome! My college French is a little rusty, but it appears as though Wilderness Heart was their Album of the Week. You can also watch interviews with Jeremy and Steve after the performance that are then overdubbed in en Francais.  Love it.

Watch New Black Mountain Video for “The Hair Song”

Ahh: tender, young, punk love – is there anything better?

A sweet little Black Mountain love connection is made in the new video for “The Hair Song,” directed by Zoe Bower and Simon Chan. “The Hair Song” includes an extremely relatable plot line to any music fans whose coming-of-age years included being shut out of 21+ clubs and finding your crush at the show.

We have a very cool making-of video to share as well! Meet the cast and crew and see the micro-movie magic go down:

Remember, kiddos! Black Mountain’s “The Hair Song” appears on their upcoming album, Wilderness Heart, out on Jagjaguwar on September 14th in the US (13th in the UK). If you order it RIGHT NOW, you’ll get an instant digital download of the record as well as a nice poster. CLICK HERE TO PRE-ORDER AND VASTLY IMPROVE YOUR LIFE.
