Iron & Wine have released a video for “Everyone’s Summer of ‘95.” In the somber clip actor David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight, Prisoners, Ant-Man) crashes a small time professional wrestling match. The song is taken from Archive Series Volume No. 1, which collects unreleased recordings and demos from Iron & Wine (aka Sam Beam) from the period his 2002 debut album, The Creek Drank the Cradle, was recorded.

Erin Elders and Jeff Tomcho directed the video. The duo explained the video to The Playlist (who premiered the video). “Iron & Wine’s music is immediately beautiful, but as you get drawn in you start to see darkness in there,” the directors told The Playlist. “We wanted to create a unique environment that was as genuine as his song but also with a bit of mystery. The idea was to create a character who could perhaps exist in an Iron & Wine song and follow them around for a night, seeing what unfolds. It was really great collaborating with David Dastmalchian, along with Jacob Fatu, Adam Sparn-Hesson, Warren Ross, and everyone who made this story come to life.”

Iron & Wine also has a collaborative covers album with Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses on the way. That one is entitled Sing Into My Mouth and due out July 17 via Brown/Black Cricket.

Here’s the video for “Everyone’s Summer of ‘95”:
