Ryley Walker is releasing a new album, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung, on August 19 via Dead Oceans. Previously he shared its first two singles, “The Halfwit in Me” and “The Roundabout.” Now “The Roundabout” has a video. Joe Martinez Jr. directed the clip, which features Walker wandering around the Pilsen area of Chicago on the Fourth of July. Watch below.

Walker had this to say about the video in a press release: “Fourth of July in Pilsen is the height of summer in Chicago. Dozens of crews with ad hoc explosives and a beer in hand make for a blitzkrieg celebration. I lived at 21st/Leavitt some years back and got to know this evening first hand very well. Forever my favorite part of summer in the city. This video hopefully captures a few of those moments of joy from the people involved.”

Golden Sings That Have Been Sung is the follow-up to 2015’s Primrose Green, an album that garnered the singer/songwriter/guitarist a slightly larger audience and more critical acclaim. The album was recorded in Chicago over the 2015 Christmas break and was produced by sometime Wilco multi-instrumentalist LeRoy Bach. “It was everything I wanted it to be,” Walker says of the sessions in a press release. “I would go to LeRoy’s house every other day with a riff, and we would take it from there.”
