At the end of the month former Girls frontman Christopher Owens will release his sophomore solo outing A New Testament, the follow-up to his 2013 LP Lysandre. Leading up to the record’s arrival Owens has debuted a brand new music video for the included single “Never Wanna See That Look Again.” Directed by Aaron Brown the visual sees Owens playing cowboy in front of a variety of old west backgrounds in a sound studio.

In an interview with Daze, who premiered the clip, Owens says, “A while back I called Aaron up and pitched him my idea. I wanted it to be in a studio like that and I wanted the background to be sort of Western - those American wide-open spaces. He actually found the backdrops in an old silent film studio, which is where we filmed. They have a basement full of old silent film stuff, and those backdrops were down there. That turned out to be really cool, it was a lot more grand and beautiful than I had imagined. He did really well there, and then he put together a team, a handful of people that were just very good, you know - camera men, lighting, all that type of stuff, so there was a small little group of us. They all did really well and that made it easier for me. I actually sent him a link to this one part of Singing in the Rain where Gene Kelly does this fantastic performance for the object of his desire - that had the look that we worked with. We didn’t completely follow it, but it was a visual reference and we went from there, it worked. I think Aaron understood what I liked about that shot and captured it. I do love that film, and Gene Kelly in general.”
