SONG OF THE DAY Kevin Morby – Aboard My Train


Kevin Morby has today shared the video for Aboard My Train, the new single off his forthcoming album, City Music, which is due on 16th June via Dead Oceans.

This upbeat little number is packed full of the typical Morby-goodness and is accompanied by a self-directed video which Kevin explains how,  “I wanted to make a video at home, something sort of lo-fi,”he explains. “I kind of missed the challenge of having to come up with something creative with little to no money.”

As for the song, Kevin had this to say: “Doing what I do, people are constantly coming in and out of your life. The moment you think you’ll never see someone again, they reappear and that’s what this song is about starting with my first best friend, Pablo, who lived on my street in Tulsa, and was my first memory of having a best friend.”

In the video we see Kevin writing down the names of many of these people who have made lasting impressions on his life. People constantly hop on and hop off life’s train and this track (excuse the pun) gives recognition to the ones that stick in your mind.  Watch and enjoy above.

City Music is out 6/16 on Dead Oceans.  Pre-order your copy here.
