“Private Show,” is the final single from Bigger Than Life, the forthcoming release by Black Marble, due out October 25, on Sacred Bones Records. “Private Show” is the first Black Marble video that Chris Stewart has ever appeared in. As he puts it: “I’ve preferred in the past not to be featured in my music videos but having set the stage in this way it felt right to metaphorically ‘show up’ for this one and lend myself to this character who feels both on the inside and outside of this world at the same time. Both I and the director grew up in the south and likely felt some of the themes from the song personally, so it was easy for me to be this person who moves through this seductive and tight knit world like a ghost.”

Director Ben Joyner on the video For “Private Show;”

“I really wanted to create something that felt alive and spontaneous. The track had this immense emotional weight to it, but also felt really fun. The goal was to craft something that reflected that feeling.” He adds, “The concept was born out of my personal relationship with an event in Mississippi called the Neshoba County Fair. It’s the nation’s largest campground fair, an abandoned southern shantytown that comes to life for one week every year at the end of July. It’s a wild and beautiful place that feels almost frozen in time. And while it’s really unique and special, it also carries some historical tension that is palpable. The music provided a rich emotional landscape to explore the place and the people that inhabit it. I loved the idea of bringing Black Marble to the fair and sort of dropping him into the middle of the spectacle”
