Los Angeles-based Sam Outlaw is hot on the heels of the release of his new full-length Angeleno, a 12-song collection co-produced by Ry Cooder that features contributions from Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Gabe Witcher (Punch Brothers), Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket) and more.

Now, Outlaw has released a video for album track “Jesus Take The Wheel (And Drive Me To A Bar),” an upbeat number that serves as apt comedic moment on a album largely characterized by poetic depth. Check out the video in the player above, and take a peek at Outlaw’s upcoming tour dates below.
