The Phil Andelman-directed clip offers a direct interpretation of the song, as Bird and Apple go toe-to-toe, delivering their verses as a quarreling couple. Bird previously said he “needed to to find someone really indicting” for the duet, and Apple fits the bill. She's all glass-breaking, foot-stamping acerbity in the video, and Bird returns plenty of eye rolls and sighs for good measure. Check it out above.
Bird’s upcoming tour will take him to the U.S. on March 30 when he’ll play a show at the Ryman in Nashville, Tenn. He has more North American stops planned through the end of April. See the full itinerary at the singer's website.
