Grandaddy reunited way back in 2012, but it wasn’t until last month that they shared their first new music in nearly 11 years. Today, they complete the comeback by announcing their long-awaited follow-up to 2006’s Just Like the Fambly Cat, a new album entitled, Last Place.
Coming via Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records, Last Place is due out on March 3rd. To celebrate the announcement of the 12-track effort, Grandaddy have shared the video for “Way We Won’t”. The clip stars actor Jason Ritter as a lonely, thirsty hitchhiker looking for a ride along a desert road.
“To be honest, I would have loved to have made a video based exactly on the lyrics of this song,” frontman Jason Lytle told NPR about the video. “But I really like [director] Chris Grieder’s treatment because the main character is an outsider who has taken to wandering and can’t get accepted (picked up) by a varying array of characters. I felt it was important to place a girl in the cast of characters, someone who had some attachment to the loner guy and perhaps, just perhaps, was responsible for putting him on that lonely road. I have to say my absolute favorite part is the very end (you have to watch it).”
Will Ritter ever get his ride? Find out by watching the Chris Greider-directed clip below.
