In Their Words: “I met Erica (Silverman, the director of this video) around seven years ago. We’ve been both life partners and creative partners since. We started shooting much of this footage shortly after falling in love, and before kids. The footage spans four continents and too many tours to count. Originally our intent was to make a narrative short film about being on the road. Life, as it often does, got away from us and said film vanished into the ether. The footage, however, remained. For Erica and I, going through it now, all these years (and two kids) later, was cathartic to say the least. It also struck us both that unknowingly we had been documenting much of the source material behind the song ‘Yesterday’s News.’ This is more than just a music video for us, it’s a window into where this song comes from.” — Robert Ellis
