Taylor Hawkins And The Coattail Riders start their 2020 with a brand new video for ‘Middle Child’. The song, described by Stereogum as a “blown-out and over-the-top rocker”, comes from their album, ‘Get The Money’, released last year through Shanabelle/Columbia Records.
Directed by Wiley Hodgden, Taylor Hawkins, and Jeff Coffman, the vintage green screen vibes for the ‘Middle Child’ clip recall the halcyon days of early ’80s MTV, while a star turn by Hawkins’ own middle child Annabelle casts an eye toward the future.
‘Middle Child’ features Hawkins himself in multiple roles, behind mics, drum kits, the wheel and coach’s whistle to name a few, with support from fellow Coattail Riders Chris Chaney (bass) and Brent Woods (guitar), both of whom played on the original song (as did Dave Grohl).
Taylor also performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, joined by a band featuring Grohl, Chaney and Woods for the network television debut of ‘Middle Child’.
