Steve Gunn and Bing & Ruth’s David Moore have come together for the new album Let the Moon Be a Planet. It comes out March 31, and it serves as the first volume of Reflections, Rvng Intl.’s new series of contemporary collaborations. Below, watch the video for Gunn and Moore’s new song “Over the Dune.”
Jason Evans directed the visual for “Over the Dune.” He explained in a statement, “This film is my attempt to inhabit the world Steve and David created with their album. Like the songs themselves, I was trying to find an approach that favored a light hand and the curiosity of a child.”
Gunn and Moore began the work on their album remotely before coming together to finish the record in Hudson, New York. It features Gunn on guitar and Moore on piano. “We didn’t know it was going to be an album,” Gunn said in a statement. “There was never pressure on us to complete or make something. It was interesting to start realizing that this could be an album and to take a step back… to arrive at a project after the fact.”
