Happy Friday world, The Avett Brothers have released a video for their new song “Ain’t No Man.” You can watch it now over at NPR Music.
The new sing-along-style song is the first single off their long-awaited new album True Sadness. The new record, which is being produced by frequent Avett collaborator Rick Rubin, releases on June 24. Earlier this week, the bassist Bob Crawford explained to Consequence of Sound why they chose the song as the first single.
I feel like “Ain’t No Man” kind of, there is a higher level to it, I’m trying to avoid the word religion and spiritual but there is something about finding your place in the universe, or being able to put your finger on where you sit in this life, whatever your religion is or your worldview is. I feel like if you take the catalog of songs that we have from 2001 to the past 15 years, there is this, this song is almost like the star on top of the tree in a way.
