Orville Peck Celebrates a Wild Year in ‘Nothing Fades Like the Light’ Video

Track appears on masked singer’s 2019 breakthrough album ‘Pony’

Masked singer Orville Peck celebrates a whirlwind year in the newly released video for “Nothing Fades Like the Light.” The song closes out Peck’s 2019 debut, Pony.

Interspersed with snippets of audio from Peck and his band, the video captures the singer’s rapid rise to fame in the last year — his crowds get bigger and more enthusiastic, and the bits of audio from the group acknowledge that the winds are changing for them. Along with the excitement, the Deni Cheng-directed video also shows the exhaustion of trying to meet those intense demands, a feeling reflected in the gloomy, moonlit atmosphere of Peck’s minor-key ballad.

Pony was released in March 2019 and introduced Peck’s mysterious persona and queer sensibility to Americana-leaning country audiences and beyond. Filled with lonesome imagery of cowboys and hustlers, the album included the songs “Dead of Night” and “Turn to Hate.”

Peck is currently on a brief break from playing shows before he heads to Australia and New Zealand in January. He’ll resume U.S. dates in late January and hit spring festivals including Stagecoach, Shaky Knees, and Hangout.
