ARTISTdirect.com is proud to team up with The Airborne Toxic Event to premiere the video clip for this acoustic rendition of "Timeless." The video was recorded in one take and features special guest The Calder Quartet.
Vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Mikel Jollett from ATE said, "Making this video with The Calder Quartet was such a privilege. They're rock stars in the classical world and just such dead-on amazing musicians that it's real honor to be able to play with them. We recorded this at Bedrock Studios in Echo Park, which is the local band hang practice studio that we did all of our rehearsals for the record at. This is the big room but most of them are just tiny little lock-outs with a PA. There's like some ratty rug and beer bottles in the trash. We got to know the guys that work there because we'd be there all day, every day, like we were clocking in to a job. There's a German Shepherd named Lucy who roams the halls. She became a mascot."
He continued, "We did this all in one take after rehearsing it a few times in the next room. I love how Andrew (Bulbrook -- Anna's brother) and Ben sound on that secondary melody on the bridge. That was originally on the record, but we decided to leave it out."
The band will release a four-song EP The Secret on March 11, which will feature the single "Timeless," plus three additional tracks.
The band's next album Such Hot Blood is due out this spring.
Nab the EP on iTunes.
Check out the intimate performance, where you will feel as though ABT and TCQ are playing a show... just for you. We've watched it about 10 times already. You will, too.
