WATCH: Alex Ebert – “Truth” (Video)

22 Jul


Earlier this year, Edward Sharpe and The Magenetic Zeros frontman Alex Ebert took a break from the band to release his solo effort Alexander, which you can listen to in its entiretyhere. The album flew under the radar considering the popularity of Mr. Ebert’s other projects, but nonetheless the track “Truth” made its way onto the season four premiere of Breaking Bad, and even the infamous RZA jumped aboard to do a rework of the original track. Earlier this week, Alex released the official video for the track “Truth,” which has Mr. Ebert donning some Jesus-like attire while wandering beaches and villages. You can watch the video in the player above.

A while back, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros frontman Alex Ebert took some time off from the group setting and put out a solo album titled Alexander. The release of the album was fairly low key and didn’t really appear on too many people’s radar. But, there’s always a way to grab people’s interest, and, in this case, Mr. Ebert joined up with the always awesomeRZA to add some Wu-Tang flavour to the track “Truth.” The song now features verses from the famed rapper mingled into the original track, which you can listen to, and download for free, here.

Thanks to OneThirtyBPM for the heads up.
