Tobias Jesso Jr. has shared the video for his new single, How Could You Babe.
How Could You Babe (and its accompanying video) is as fine an introduction to the singer-songwriter as you're likely to get. You see Tobias sat by a piano set against the backdrop of various American cityscapes. You see his fingers touch the keys. You see him singing. It's very authentic and real.
It's also very good: Tobias is an extremely talented traditional songwriter, and it's no surprise that he was able to bring in such a strong cast of collaborating producers like Ariel Rechshaid, JR White (Girls), Pat Carney (Black Keys), Jonathan Rado (Foxygen), and John Collins (New Pornographers) to help bring his songs to life.
Supporting the release of 'Goon', Tobias Jesso Jr. will be heading out on the road for a short European tour, and you should try and catch him if he's nearby.
