Filmed at Chicago’s historic Thalia Hall and directed by Hannah Welever, the video captures the juxtaposition of the song’s bittersweet lyrics set against the charming and dreamy backdrop of a middle school dance

“My crew and I had an amazing time creating such a nostalgic moment from our adolescence. There’s something really poetic about how we deal with our emotions at different ages. Using the song as a backbone, we were able to revisit this window of time full of excitement and wonder, and compare it to a more pragmatic present-day self,” Welever described. “Relationships evolve and shift constantly and I find that to be such a ubiquitous, human characteristic I find in Sam’s music”

Iron & Wine is currently on tour around the UK, with a Manchester show tonight and London’s Hammersmith Apollo tomorrow
