Unlike the visuals for his first two singles off True, Avicii isn’t in a partying mood for his latest. The EDM DJ delivers his most emotional and heartfelt narrative to date. “Hey Brother” puts American patriotism front and center. Rather surprising given his Swedish heritage.
The Jesse Sternbaum-directed clip chronicles the life of two brothers growing up in a small town. Their unbreakable bond is broken when the older brother leaves for war. Avicii makes a cameo at the end, presumedly as the younger brother of the fallen soldier. A worthy visual to the Dan Tyminski-accompanied track. “Hey Brother” featuring the bluegrass singer is one of the standouts on Avicii’s debut, True. Check out the video below.
