American Football recruited Paramore’s Hayley Williams for “Uncomfortably Numb,” the latest taste of their forthcoming LP American Football (LP3). The band shared the official video for the song today as well.
In the video, Workaholics star Blake Anderson is seen in a cameo hovering over a person who seems to have been injured. The entire video is shot from the perspective of the injured as an ambulance takes them away. Over the stark visual, Mike Kinsella and Hayley Williams offer up a seamless duet that matches the emotional intensity of the video. The song is earnest but far more pop-leaning than American Football’s previous music, as Kinsella and Williams sing about the regrets of their youth and more naive relationships.
American Football’s latest album is due out March 22nd. The band also announced a tour, which will launch the same weekend their new album is released and end in June in Houston.
