Bob Dylan Premieres Music Video for ‘The Night We Called It a Day’
As fans still ponder the results of Bob Dylan's new Frank Sinatra tribute album of sorts, Shadows in the Night, a beautiful new video for the song "The Night We Called It A Day" has just been released. You can watch it below.
Shot entirely in stark black and white, the video plays out like a 1950s film noir homage, complete with authentic period screen titles. Dylan stars in the clip along with actors Robert Davi and Tracy Phillips. The plot of a doomed love triangle unfolds quickly, wrapping up in just over three minutes with Dylan engaged in a shootout with police. The style of the video perfectly suits the album and seems to tie it all together, helping to put the whole of Shadows in the Night into perspective.
The song was written by Matt Dennis and Tom Adair and first published in 1941. It appeared on Sinatra's 1957 classic, Where Are You?.
Coincidentally -- or perhaps not -- Davi actually has his own Sinatra tribute act, which led legendary producer Quincy Jones to comment, "He brought back the essence and soul of Ol' Blue Eyes himself."
