Paul Cauthen takes viewers into the studio and the making of his ferocious sophomore album, Room 41, in the video for the track "Holy Ghost Fire," premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Oct. 30).
The clip, directed by frequent collaborator Vincent Monsaint, shows the animated Texas singer-songwriter rocking out as he leads his band through the song. "We just let it fly," Cauthen tells Billboard. "We knew that we wanted to capture how we really go after the live takes and how we do it in there. I really wanted it to show that we get a bunch of musicians in there and we all play some instruments and play the song six, seven, eight times and beat it down 'til we get it right.
"[The video] happened in that moment, just like that. It's all one shot. [Vincent] basically joined us in the band, like a collaborative effort, just like we do [the music]."
