Watch Christopher Paul Stelling’s New ‘Hard Work’ Music Video
Christopher Paul Stelling is just about a month away from making his Anti- debut with the June 16 release of Labor Against Waste. Ahead of that day, the New York City-based singer-songwriter has shared a music video for “Hard Work,” the third song to emerge from his forthcoming full-length.
The new Josh Wool-directed clip captures Stelling in his New York City apartment performing the Labor Against Waste song live in just one take on a battered guitar. Check it out in the video up above (via NPR).
“It’s somewhat a secular prayer,” Stelling says of “Hard Work” in a press release. “It’s a song about the strength it takes to love each other, no matter what the cost. It’s a song about who I’d like to be someday and who I’ve been.”
Stelling will launch a U.S. tour following his appearance at this year’s Newport Folk Festival from July 24-26. Dates are yet to be announced, but they are expected to run through November.
