David Knight - 4th Apr 2016

In the history of rock ‘n’ roll, there are plenty of stories about musicians being such perfectionists that they’ll keep bands in the studio for hours on end, just to perfect a song. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats play up this trope in the video for I Need Never Get Old directed by Greg Barnes.

Though it took the band just two hours to actually record the song, the video imagines what it would’ve been like if Rateliff was more like Springsteen in the studio, forcing his band to redo sections over and over again. Suffice to say, the title of the song becomes ironic by the end of the video.

Looks like this one took even longer than the second Stone Roses album...
