Today, Charlie Parr has officially shared the music video for his song, “Boombox.”

The music video was directed and animated by Kev Craven, and is a whimsical celebration of the unique and meaningful relationships that people can have with music.

Watch the new video from Parr below.

“Boombox” is from the acclaimed new album from Parr, Little Sun, which was released last month via Smithsonian Folkways and can be purchased hereNotably his first ever album to not be recorded entirely live, Little Sun was produced by close friend and collaborator Tucker Martine (Sufjan Stevens, The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket) and finds Parr reflecting on the world and people around him. 

Of the project, Parr shares, “Up until this very album, my recordings have always been done live, with few if any overdubs and nearly always the first take—leave all the mistakes, missed lyrics, extraneous noise, and whatever else might happen there for the ages. Most records have been recorded in roughly the time that it took to play the songs. And that’s been fine, actually. Here’s a new way for me, though: here’s an album that was recorded live but in collaboration with producer Tucker Martine, who’s become a friend and trusted musical ally. You’ll hear what happened, so I don’t need to describe it to you, but I’m very grateful for the opportunity to work with this very talented group of musicians.”
