Jonathan Wilson Unveils New Video ‘There’s A Light’

Jonathan Wilson has shared a video for “There’s A Light,” off the new album Rare Birds, which debuted in the Heatseekers Top 10 Chart and earned widespread critical acclaim. 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 tells us, “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.”

Jonathan Wilson has just concluded a successful run of U.S. dates, including a packed house at Music Hall of Williamsburg in New York City, and begins an extensive European tour tonight in Glasglow. Full list of dates is below.


Wilson’s third solo release follows an eventful 2017, spent producing Father John Misty’s Grammy-winning Pure Comedy as well as Karen Elson’s critically acclaimed Double Roses, and touring the globe as guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters. Rare Birds features contributions from acclaimed cohorts including the legendaryLaraaji, Father John Misty, Lana Del Rey and Lucius.
