Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan should just go ahead and form a band. May we suggest I’m With Her — the name of the trio’s recent successful joint tour. This morning, these monsters of modern folk released “Be My Husband,” a hand-clapping, A cappella, sexually-charged tune about domesticity (originally popularized by Nina Simone).
The corresponding video sees the three singers in a wind-swept environment — it’s powerful and it’s pretty damn good. According to TwangNation, the clip was directed by Watkins’ husband Todd Cooper, and was filmed on the deck of the A Prairie Home Companion cruise back in March. Check it out below.
