See the Decadent New Video from Zac Brown’s Sir Rosevelt

ZBB leader recalls the ‘Great Gatsby’ in outlandish clip for “Sunday Finest”

Sir Rosevelt, the mysterious new side project from Zac Brown, revealed all today and released the video for the funky, disco-inspired track “Sunday Finest.”

In a Periscope video before the premiere, Brown introduced his Sir Rosevelt bandmates as singer-songwriter Niko Moon – with whom he’s worked for over a decade – and Ben Simonetti, a Nashville recording engineer who worked on Brown’s recent Jekyll + Hyde album, among other releases. “Sir Rosevelt can go to a lot of new places,” says Brown. “It’s like painting with a whole bunch of new colors.”

True to that statement, the video for “Sunday Finest” recalls the glorious opulence of the Great Gatsby‘s Roaring Twenties, mixed with hip-hop style and swagger. Directed by Diego Pernia, who previously collaborated with Brown on the “Remedy” video, it’s an ode to the relentless pursuit of hedonism. Brown, Moon and Simonetti are all dressed to the nines, with Brown appearing hatless for perhaps the first time in his career. There are also dancers kicking and shaking their way through a tricky choreography routine and numerous shots of classic muscle cars smoking their tires.

In addition to the new video, Sir Rosevelt also issued three new songs via Twitter: “For My Own,” “Nothing’s Going to Stop Us” and “Take Your Love Away.” Hear them all below. As Brown has promised the next Zac Brown Band project will return the band to its roots, Sir Rosevelt appears to be an outlet for him to explore his wide-ranging interests, as evidenced in the trap beats of “Take Your Love Away” and the fusion of blues and disco in “For My Own.”
