Jonathan Wilson

Jonathan Wilson had a busy 2017, producing Father John Misty’s Pure Comedy, Karen Elson’s Double Roses, and touring the globe as guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters. Rare Birds features contributions from Laraaji, Father John Misty, Lana Del Rey and Lucius. Jonathan Wilson continues his European tour, tonight in Glasgow.

Today, Jonathan Wilson shares a video for “There’s A Light,” off Rare Birds Jonathan’s longtime friend and collaborator Grant James created the video, shooting with obsolete Japanese broadcast cameras and performing analog effects by hand. The playfully transcendental video features an introduction by Bedouine and guest vocals from Lucius.

Jonathan Wilson on “There’s A Light”:

“One of my favorite tracks on Rare Birds is undoubtedly ‘There’s A Light.’ It was written late in the sessions, the idea came to me that i needed an anthem of pure positivity, the point was to put these words of peace love and hope in the mouths of whoever sang along. The track you hear is the first take we played of the song, ever.”
