Sturgill Simpson – Sing Along (Official Video)

Okay, so I’m not going to get poetic about Sturgill Simpson’s Sound and anger, but the fact is this country artist fell in love with anime and then went to netflix and said, “shall we produce a 40 minute episodic anime movie that uses my latest album as its soundtrack.” What came out of the collaboration is a cypberpunk/country mashup that is a joy to watch and listen to, and I haven’t seen enough people talking about it yet. Japanese director Junpei Mizusaki took on the project, and everything about it is weird, awesome, and teaming up with Simpson’s outlaw country roots that sprouted electronic flowers. So while this single is available to stream, the whole thing is on Netflix, and it’s well worth your time. And if you want to read me poetically about this, I got you covered.
