Reunited emo rockers American Football recently reissued their iconic 1999 self-titled album. As if the deluxe release — chock-full of live recordings, demos, and other unreleased goodies — wasn’t enough to chew on, the band’s just shared the video for album standout “Never Meant”.
Or, shall we say finally? A clip seemingly 15 years in the making, it captures the essence of American Football, then and now: young euphoric love, contemplative breakups, and, of course, the Midwest. It’s a little hard to believe it’s taken this long for the group to breathe visual life into arguably one of their best songs, but hey, better late than never. Bonus: see if you can spot the house featured prominently on the album’s cover.
