While Hanni El Khatib’s use of a sex-crazed biker gang in the video for “Family” seemed an unbeatable cinematic triumph, his new short film by Yours Truly is incredible for completely different reasons.

The piece begins as an introduction to Khatib’s time in Nashville, where he recorded his sophomore album, Head In The Dirt, at The Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Studios. As he and Auerbach tour a local body shop, Khatib contemplates his new found appreciation for Music City (“No one’s trying to prove anything to anyone out here. Everyone seems real genuine and sincere. I don’t run into people like this in LA. That’s why it was nice to come out here and integrate myself into Nashville.”)

The duo then return to the studio for a performance of a brand new track, “Nobody Move”. Khatib leaves behind the sentimentality of “Penny” and gets back to the business of grimy rock and roll, building a tune that combines the swagger and intensity of his producer’s main band with the subtle SoCal punk stylings of a mid-’90s Rancid. Suffice to say, Nashville seems to have done all sorts of good for Khatib (and maybe a little vice versa).

Head In The Dirt is due out April 30th via Innovative Leisure.
