Back in June, an artsy new music video project was premiered for Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s classic rock anthem “Fortunate Son,” created in part to commemorate the band‘s 50th anniversary — and now the same treatment has been given to “Have You Ever Seen the Rain”.
The story-based clip can be viewed below:
That’s warm, isn’t it? Its release comes shortly after CCR’s The Complete Studio Albums vinyl box set was unveiled and made available in late November.
More information on the project, via the official news release:
Directed by Laurence Jacobs–who has directed and produced videos for artists including Andrew Bird, Steve Martin, Elvis Costello and Valerie June–the project features Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games, Logan Lucky, HBO’s Vinyl and Amazon’s upcoming series, The Boys), Sasha Frolova (FOX’s Red Sparrow, Netflix’s Snowpiercer, KENZO’s The Everything) and Erin Moriarty (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Amazon’s The Boys). “I knew I wanted to tell a coming-of-age story,” Jacobs explains. “Something distinctly real that encapsulated identity. Not teenage years, but specifically your early 20s when you’re still growing and trying to become someone.” The result is a story that captures early adulthood’s wild rush of nostalgia and freedom, mixed with heartbreak and melancholy-emotions of which the song is emblematic.
