Less than a month after dropping the video for “I Know” via NOISEY, Shovels & Rope give a video release for another single off upcoming LP Little Seeds.
This time around, it was NPR Music that revealed “St Anne’s Parade,” a song the band described on Facebook as “both universal and personal.”

Created by their pals at Moving Picture Boys, the video shows footage from several years ago when the couple, Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, traveled to New Orleans during Mardis Gras to attend a colorful, playful, wonderfully weird wedding. Hearst told NPR, “Friends of ours had a ‘The Owl And The Pussycat’-themed wedding party that marched with St. Anne’s. They took their vows on the riverbank while the sun shone down on a previously rainy morning. Everyone was feeling sweet and love was all around.”
Watch the video for "St Anne's Parade" below, and we dare you not to tear up just a little when they sing, "And it never feels like we're getting any older/ But the memories build up around the eyes/ And I need more fingers than I got on my two hands/ This life may be too good to survive."
