Singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile has given her latest music video a fun, personal twist. For the filming of “Keep Your Heart Young,” Carlile enlisted her nephew and two nieces to play the younger versions of herself and her bandmates, twins Tim and Phil Hanseroth.
“I think this is the only video we’ve ever made that truly speaks volumes to what the lyric is about,” said Carlile. “The performance footage was literally shot at my home, so I’d say that’s about as down home as you can get.”
Carlile and the band made the video with the help of friend and London-based filmmaker Ed Christmas.
“He really understood the direction we wanted to go in, and how we felt the need to strip away the sheen and acting that usually comes with a video shoot,” Carlile said. “So that people can really relate to how messy life is and how important it is to ‘Keep Your Heart Young.’”
