Music  |  Video

Alt-country singer-songwriter Pieta Brown’s “Before Gas and TV” originally appeared on Mark Knopfler’s 2009 solo effort Get Lucky, but in this new video Brown offers her own take on the grim and gloomy tune. Marked by ominous banjo plucking and her high and lonesome melody, Brown takes the song to new heights. Check out the video in the player above.

“Before Gas and TV” will appear on Brown’s forthcoming LP Paradise Outlaw, which is set for release on Sept. 30 via Red House Records. You can preorder the album here. Below, check out Brown’s full upcoming tour schedule.
