My Morning Jacket debuted a new music video for “Feel You” during National Geographic’s Earth Day Eve Live Stream. The song is a slow and steady rock ballad towards a loved one and in the music video, this loved one is the Earth. Check it out below:
It gushes with affection and warmth as the lead singer switches between falsetto and chest voice. Piano and bass accompany the vocals while an electric guitar periodically takes over the lead in instrumental breaks with a dance-like rhythm. The drums keep a constant pulse that allows people to sway with the music. The video features vivid colors and the lead singer Jim James wandering through a forest while feeling the different aspects of nature with his hands.
Filmed largely in nature, National Geographic’s Earth Day Eve Live Stream used music to celebrate the Earth and inspired people to preserve the planet. The virtual event featured musical performances by artists from places of importance to them around the globe, including:
