    September's final full week saw some of music's most loved artists dropping new visuals for new music. From intimate moments with friends and family to dystopic glimpses of celebrity culture, these past seven days have provided some beautiful clips to start off the Fall season.

    Kurt Vile & Courtney Barnett unveiled the second single from their upcoming album, and with it, heartfelt memories from their hometowns. Charlotte Gainsbourg continues her eerie streak with the new single, "Rest", and its music video.

    The Horrors went sci-fi in a clip for the final track from their brand new fifth album. Belle & Sebastian, meanwhile, reminded us of Saturday morning's natural beauty. So without further ado, here are ARTISTdirect's top music videos of the week:





    Kurt Vile & Courtney Barnett — Cozy Continental Breakfast

    When Philadelphia rocker Kurt Vile and Australian bad-a** Courtney Barnett first announced they were teaming up for an album, it quickly became one of the most highly anticipated collaborative efforts in years. With the record's release now just two weeks off, a few days ago they shared the video for the album's second single, "Cozy Continental Breakfast". Danny Cohen directed the clip, which blends footage of Vile and Barnett in their respective homes of Philadelphia and Melbourne. The artists hang with family and friends in montages revealing the internal worlds of two of today's finest songwriters.


    U2 — "You're the Best Thing About Me"

    U2's new album, Songs of Experience, is due out December 1st. The music video for the album's first single, "You're the Best Thing About Me", is a love letter to Bono's wife, Ali, and as the band explains, serves as a "a visual tapestry of tribute to New York and a serenade to the city's iconic symbols of American compassion and liberty." Director Jonas Åkerlund caught the footage as the band visited some of the Big Apple's most famous sights.


    Charlotte Gainsbourg — Rest

    Earlier this month, Charlotte Gainsbourg announced her first new album in eight years, bringing on more than a little bit of excitement, especially since the announcement came with a stellar bilingual single, "Rest". Co-written and produced by Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, the track has finally received a video that's equally mysterious as the song. It features shots of Gainsbourg in a studio, with a bed on the floor, in some sort of warehouse, spliced with b-reel footage of various everyday moments.


    The Horrors — Something to Remember Me By

    Last Friday, The Horrors dropped their jaw-dropping fifth album, V. In celebration of its successful release, this week the band shared the clip for its triumphant final song, "Something to Remember Me By". Director Max Weiland explained, "This video is a comment on society's obsession with celebrity and the music industry's attempt to take advantage of that. A strange corporation harvests The Horrors for their real blood, sweat, tears and more, turning their bodily fluids into consumer products ready for the mass market."


    Belle and Sebastian — We Were Beautiful

    Back in June, Belle & Sebastian unveiled their single, "We Were Beautiful". It was their first piece of new music since 2015's Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance. Now the track has a video, and its YouTube description reads, "Life experienced at different speeds as the city wakes up over a Saturday morning… Filmed throughout Glasgow, from Crookston in the south-west, through the City Centre to Easterhouse and Cranhill." Filled with beautiful warm frames shot across cool colors, it's the weekend morning drive of our dreams.
