Fans of Americana music are still grieving over the loss of journeyman singer/songwriter John Prine, who died this past April from health complications caused by COVID-19. While various tributes filled the Internet in the weeks following his death, Prine’s songs continue to uplift and encourage those looking for a musical escape as this dismal year without live music limps on into its final months.
On Monday, Prine’s estate shared a new lyric video for “I Remember Everything”, the last song that he would end up writing with his longtime collaborator Pat McLaughlin before his death. The song premiered in June during Picture Show: A Tribute Celebrating John Prine webcast event in tribute to the iconic singer-songwriter.
The relaxing video was directed and edited by Joshua Britt and Neilson Hubbard, and showcases peaceful imagery ranging from postcards (a nod to the years Prine spent working as a mailman) to clips pertaining to fishing (another nod another Prine original “Fish and Whistle” from his 1978 Bruised Orange album).
Watch the new lyric video below.
