CASS MCCOMBS RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR “BRADLEY MANNING,” PREMIERED VIA NPR MUSIC’S “FIRST WATCH”
After sharing the “Robin Egg Blue” video in March, Cass McCombs now releases the video for the song, “Bradley Manning,” a poignant tribute to the alleged Army whistleblower. The fantastic “Bradley Manning” video was filmed by director Bradley Beesley, best known for his work with The Flaming Lips, in Manning’s hometown of Crescent, OK on Independence Day, allowing Beesley to capture iconic and patriotic visuals that create a mood eerily complimentary to the song.NPR Music premiered the video earlier today via their First Watch series.
