    ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with indie musician Todd Mihan, who specializes in guitar-charged country rock, to premiere the video for his song "Battleground," from his self-titled album, which is out this month. The clip was directed by Keith Megna, who has worked with Sheryl Crow and Beck! Not too shabby.

    "It was great reconnecting with my long time friend and director Keith Megna for the 'Battleground' video shoot," Mihan, who was born in Memphis but raised in upstate New York, told us about the clip. "'Battleground' is a very personal song for me. It reflects the many years of struggling through a toxic relationship, and it's eventual end. Keith found the perfect location and truly captured the essence of the song on film."

    The video features Mihan playing –there's some close ups of him finger picking his acoustic guitar against a graffiti backdrop-- and staring directly into the camera. There's even two Todd Mihans at one point. It's a simple, stark clip but sometimes that's all a musician needs to make a point. It works for this song and this artist, since it allows the words and music to be the focus.



    What did you think of the "Battleground" video?
