In what is hopefully the first of many, burgeoning singer-songwriter Blake Mills has shared a rehearsal video for a track from his sophomore effort, 'Heigh Ho.' Check out the intimate video for 'Don't Tell Our Friends About Me' above.

Opening with a simple and stripped-down rendition involving just an acoustic guitar and upright bass, Mills gives fans an intimate peek at one of the most heartfelt -- and heart-wrenching -- songs  on the new album.

As we mentioned in our review of 'Heigh Ho,' Mills "has a way with layering poignant thoughts throughout with his lyrics," and watching him perform the song with so much passion and intent only serves to take 'Don't Tell Our Friends About Me' to a deeper, even more meaningful level. The video expands to feature Mills' live band as they practice the new tune.

'Heigh Ho' is available now wherever fine records are sold. Get details on the release and Mills' current tour at his official website here.

As you wait for him to visit your hometown, check out another impassioned performance of 'Don't Tell Our Friends About Me,' this time, from two years ago:
