“Here Comes The River” Patrick Watson

Patrick Watson has released a new video for his latest single “Here Comes The River.” The track is off Watson’s current release Wave, now available via Domino/Secret City.

Director Arizona O’Neill on “Here Comes The River:”

“Everyone who hears this song relates to it profoundly in one way or another. It morphs for each person, depending on their personal experiences. I wanted to capture the raw emotions of the song by stripping away all gimmicks and filming Patrick singing on our city’s public pianos. It was important to film in Montreal because he is from the city and is so beloved here. Patrick has an amazing stage presence and to be able to capture that I had to get him in front of a real audience. This way I could also capture the happy, sad, and nostalgic feelings that the song evokes through the eyes of listeners. My favorite part of the video, however, was filming Patrick on an enormous swan paddle boat in the middle of the canal.”

Wave recorded and mixed by Rob Heaney at Studio 105 and Studio Pierre-Marchand in Montreal. During the making of the album, Patrick lost his mother, his longtime drummer left the group and he and his partner separated. Of the album, Watson notes, “The songs are about how sometimes you have to sing a love song to yourself when no one else will, allowing the sound to carry you and learning to trust where you will land. It is very personal, intimate and the most humble of all my records.”

Watson composes, performs and records his albums with his full band, which includes Joe Grass (guitar), Evan Tighe (drums) and Mishka Stein (bass).
