Today Cass McCombs is releasing his rarities collection, A Folk Set Apart: Rarities, B-Sides & Space Junk, Etc., via Domino. In honor of that he has shared a video for "I Cannot Lie." Malcolm Pullinger directed the video, which is cut to footage from the 2005 documentary Following Sean, about San Francisco in 1969 and originally directed by Ralph Arlyck. What it below.

Here's what McCombs had to say about the video in a press release: "Alongside its original release on 7-inch in 2003, 'I Cannot Lie' appeared in the documentary Following Sean by Ralph Arlyck. I had been a fan of Ralph's work, and my friend Malcolm was working with him on the film and introduced us (I actually wrote some of 'Your Mother and Father' on Ralph's piano). This video is an excerpt from Following Sean, slightly reworked. These images from the Bay Area in 1969 still seem relevant today, especially the shots of protesters being beaten by militant police."

McCombs has also announced a one off album release show on Thursday, January 7th at the Bowery Ballroom in New York.
