Dierks Bentley has released an in-depth look at the epic four-day filming process of his “stunning” (TIME) new ‘Black’ music video, exclusively on Amazon today. “The title track of the Country singer’s eighth album is about love and lust — and the video is all over that concept” (Washington Post), as fans can now be part of the experience on and off the set with Bentley, his wife Cassidy, director Wes Edwards and the team responsible for pulling off the breathtaking video in remote areas of Iceland under extreme weather conditions.
“The way the ‘Black’ treatment translated on film just blew my mind and really beat every expectation I had,” said Bentley. “Traveling there with Cassidy and our video team was a once in a lifetime thing. I’m glad the cameras were there to capture the memories we created together.”
“The first song I heard off the album was ‘Black,’ and after a friend got married in Iceland told me about its black beaches – this idea has been logged in my head,” added director Wes Edwards. “Dierks told me they have black beaches in Tahiti but somehow I convinced him to go to Iceland instead! We had a lot of hard-fought days contending with the weather but every angle the camera was pointed there was something amazing to capture. Dierks and Cassidy were troopers until the bitter end…and I do mean bitter.”
