Chelsea Wolfe Shares Eerie New Music Video ‘Highway’

Chelsea Wolfe has shared an eerie video for her new single “Highway,” from her new album Birth of Violence.

The clip is simple, featuring the singer performing in a graveyard. But it’s the quiet, subtle nature of the video that gives it an eerie quality.

Speaking about the video, Wolfe said “I’ve been blessed to work with both Ben Chisholm and Kristin Cofer for many years now as creative collaborators. Ben sometimes does something called ‘grave-hunting,’ searching for graves for people online who are looking for their relatives in faraway cemeteries. Kristin and I went along with him one day last spring to a hidden graveyard in a small mountain town and I brought my guitar along. We searched, and filmed, and played some music for those who’ve passed on.

The feel of the video was inspired by some footage I stumbled upon of Joni Mitchell from a 1966 French-Canadian TV show, after I had already written ‘Highway,’ but the feel was just so sweet and natural and free, and I wanted to bring that to life for my own song as well, since Joni has been such a big inspiration for me since childhood.”

Wolfe will embark on her acoustic European/UK tour later this month. Find all her dates here.
