See Old Dominion Nod to Music History in ‘Song for Another Time’ Video

ACM’s reigning New Duo/Group of the Year make a bid for the most clever video of the summer with time-tripping new clip

With a clever opening sequence transitioning from a vintage Victrola gramophone into the era of the iPhone, Old Dominion’s time- and tune-traveling music video for “Song for Another Time” revisits 100 years of recording technology. 

Propelled by images of classic radios, turntables and the all-too-often maligned 8-track tape deck, the clip for the slow-cooking rocker attempts to turn back the clock on a fading romance, while the lyrics cite the titles of dozens of familiar songs, from Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” to Lionel Richie’s “Dancing on the Ceiling” to Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.” A mix of live concert footage, dazzling visual effects and even some classic clips of their younger selves, “Song for Another Time” raises the bar on videos for a band already known for creative visual risks: their video for debut hit “Break Up With Him” was an homage to Back to the Future, complete with a DeLorean. “Song for Another Time” is the third single off the group’s Meat and Candy LP.

In addition to their own headlining dates, Old Dominion, the reigning ACM New Duo/Group of the Year, are also on the road as special guests on Kenny Chesney’s Spread the Love Tour, along with Miranda Lambert and Jake Owen.
