See Lilly Hiatt Pay Homage to Vinyl in New Video for ‘Records’

Rocking track appears on the Nashville singer-songwriter’s 2017 effort ‘Trinity Lane’

Lilly Hiatt has released a new video for “Records,” the anthemic rock & roll centerpiece to 2017’s Trinity Lane. The video, part touring diary, part love letter to vinyl, and part live performance, was filmed during Hiatt and her band’s recent tour with the Drive-By Truckers.

“We’ve spend the last year on the road, rocking everything from A Tribe Called Quest to The Basement Tapes in the van,” Hiatt tells Rolling Stone Country. “Everyone in my band spent years in our rooms with headphones on, exploring anything we could get our hands on. Our love of music is what brought us together. I look at records as dear friends I can count on.”

In the video, directed by Michael Kessler, Hiatt flips through albums in a record store and also shows off some of her favorite LPs from her personal collection.

“Music has saved my soul, and I think it’s saved a lot of people’s souls,” Hiatt told Rolling Stone Country last year. “It’s connected me in a deeper way than anything else really can, where it’s like, I can hear a Lightnin’ Hopkins song and relate to it. I can hear a Liz Phair song and relate to it, and I can hear a Loretta Lynn song and relate to it. Those are all really different people, but we’ve all felt the same things, and that’s really empowering. Not to be morose about it, but if it weren’t for that, I don’t think I’d be here.”
