First Aid Kit filmed a clip for their new homage to Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, and June Carter in the perfect location: Joshua Tree National Park, one of Parsons’ favorite haunts and — according to a famous ’70s rock story — his final resting place. Not only did the Swedish duo get the setting and reverent allusion to that story just right, but they also shot this scenic video on what would have been Parsons’ 65th birthday last November. Above, enjoy the Maximilla Lukacs-directed clip and excellent Mike Mogis-produced single from The Lion’s Roar.
