Small Black are releasing their new album, Best Blues, which is due out October 16 via Jagjaguwar. Previously the band has shared the Best Blues songs “Boys Life,” “No One Wants It to Happen to You,” and “Back At Belle’s.” Now “Boys Life” has a video, except it’s really about a girl’s life. Nick Bentgen directed the clip, which chronicle’s a woman’s love life through the years, as she reflects back on her various romantic partners. Check it out below via FADER, who premiered it.

Best Blues is the band’s third full-length, and is the follow-up to 2013’s underrated Limits of Desire full-length and 2014’s Real People EP. The band spent a year recording the album and then enlisted the help of mixer Nicholas Vernhes (Deerhunter, The War on Drugs) to help them finish it.

Check out the “Boys Life” video below, followed by the band’s tour dates. Also feel free to read our 2013 interview with the band or our 2014 interview with them.

abI can say that my4n-news Learner & Teacher came at the right moment for me as I was snatritg intense review of listening comprehension/speaking skills with my students prior to taking the BTS exam!  This platform allowed me to access authentic documents very quickly.  No more searching the web for hours looking for an appropriate video and no more hassle when it comes to making it available for watching by the whole class!  The platform allowed me to select my videos and share them directly with my students, who could view them from home before coming to the class.  Monitoring the students’ work is very simple!  Definitely, my4n-news is an easy-to-use platform.  Fast, easy-to-use and accessible from anywhere.  I recommend it to all my colleagues, so you too choose my4n-news!bb
