Texas singer-songwriter Charley Crockett has released a video for his latest single, “Borrowed Time.”
In the self-directed video, the Americana artist spends the day at a carnival while performing the sentimental song. He rides the ferris wheel and enjoys the festivities as day turns into night. “I want to be free / it’s my only crime / Loving you on borrowed time,” he sings over jaunty fiddles and hand claps.
“Borrowed Time” is a cut from Crockett’s forthcoming album, The Valley, which was recorded a week before the singer underwent a life-saving heart surgery in January. “I needed to have these songs in case I didn’t get through [the surgeries],” Crockett said in a statement. “I needed them just to tell people my story. To show folks what I’ve been through in life.”
The Valley arrives September 20 via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers. Watch the video for “Borrowed Time” here:
