Matthew E. White has shared a new music video for "Vision" from his album Fresh Blood released earlier this year.  The groovy, horn-driven track gets a heartwarming film treatment from filmmaker Clara Aranovich and features Edi Gathegi (Twilight, Justified, X-Men) and Caitlin Stasey (Reign, Please Like Me, Neighbours). Nowness, who co-produced the video, is streaming it on their site or watch it below.

Along with the video comes the premiere of a track from the Fresh Blood: No Skin, a new deluxe full-length featuring a minimalist mix of the critically acclaimed album, minus strings, horns or choir, previously only available on the Fresh Blood deluxe vinyl edition. Fresh Blood: No Skin will be available digitally this Friday, July 24.  Stream the ‘No Skin’ version of "Vision" below the video.

Director Clara Aranovich said of the "Vision" music video:

This track captivated me immediately upon first hearing it on an indie radio station in LA and I knew instantly I wanted to direct a music video for it. I’m generally more drawn towards narrative videos and had been doing some research into the life experiences of the visually impaired (believe it or not, it was not the title "Vision" that inspired the idea of exploring blindness but rather a coincidence). The song lends itself so beautifully to the growth and conclusion of a complete story that the writing process was breezy.  And, as is the norm with me, what started as an intimate realistic story turned into something a bit absurd and surrealist and about so much more for me.”
