Home Free has seen troubles all their days in their poignant cover of the Grammy-winning tune “Man of Constant Sorrow.” Billboard has the exclusive premiere for the new music video, released Friday (Sept. 28).
The song, famously heard in the 2000 movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? is given a more stripped-down flavor by the quintet. The rustic and warm-toned video, featuring scenery and costumes that look like they could be straight out of the movie, was filmed in Fairhope, Alabama, aligning perfectly with Home Free’s Southern roots.
“We’ve taken this song all around the world this past year on tour,” baritone Adam Chance tells Billboard of the cover. “It was inspiring to be able to bring it back home to Alabama, and really dig deep into the heart of it for our video.”
Tenor Rob Lundquist adds: “I’ve lost count how many times I’ve seen O Brother, Where Art Thou? It definitely put this classic tune on the map for a lot of people, and we sure hope we’ve honored it!”
Country’s only all-vocal band is currently in the midst of their Timeless World Tour, and gearing up to kick off their A Country Christmas Tour. Watch the cover below of “Man of Constant Sorrow,” featured on their latest album Timeless.
