Coco Hames releases self-titled album
shares new music video for “I Don’t Wanna Go”
& announces European shows
To mark the occasion, Hames shares a new music video. The video for “I Don’t Wanna Go” was shot in the California desert last month and features many of the musicians who recorded the album with Hames: bassist Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, The Greenhornes), drummer Julian Dorio (The Whigs), and guitarist Adam Meisterhans (The Weight).
“We shot the video in my spiritual home of Joshua Tree, CA. When I am there, I stay with my friend David Catching (Eagles of Death Metal, desert host, and king) and we record whatever we feel like. I’m so peaceful and at home there, which I think is noticeable in the video too; I’m not much of an actor, and what you see is me purely content! I have a rotating cast for my live performances, but the musicians who recorded the album with me were there. We all go way back, and I was just blissed out to be with my friends. David let me drive his car, and Will, the director, had me up before dawn to get the good light. I’ve never had so much fun.”
