Bob Dylan's new video promotes gangs, art photography


Bobdylan_lA video for “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’,” the first single from Together Through Life, is now streaming exclusively on Amazon (click here, then look for a small box on the right side of the screen), and it’s worth checking out if you’re into pompadours and/or cool old photographs. The entire video is made up of still photos taken from Bruce Davidson’s 1959 book Brooklyn Gang – shot after shot of greasy-haired, tatooed tough-guys, captured in moody black and white and set to Dylan’s punched-in-the-throat vocals. (Davidson also shot Together’s cover.) Conceptually, it doesn’t quite fit the new album’s Southwestern vibe (mariachi accordion figures prominently throughout), but somehow it still works.
