Six months ago I had the great pleasure of interviewing Lee Fields in person for VICE.com. Somehow I managed to keep my shit together and not totally fan out on him, only shyly asking for a picture right before he walked away. Fast forward to today: It’s Thursday and I’m at work day dreaming about being on a beach wearing white linen while drinking a frozen margarita and holding hands with Tim Riggins (shirtless, obviously). We’re on our honeymoon and having a leisurely afternoon… Shit. Now my boss comes by my desk and I have to act like I’m checking my email. But, oh hey, there’s a fun, non-work-related message in my inbox: Danny from Truth & Soul Records is letting me know that Lee has a brand new music video out for his song “Faithful Man.” SWEET.
You should just watch the video yourself, but here’s a breakdown of what it contains: super hot girls slithering around in black leotards, dark red lighting, booze, Lee in a sparkling white jacket, a piano, and lots of emotions/heartache/crying. It’s great.
And if you are lucky enough to be in any of these cities in October, you can catch Lee Fields & The Expressions perform.
