Myles Kennedy has released a music video for “The Great Beyond,” a track off his solo album, Year of the Tiger. The clip, which is in black & white, splices together live footage of Kennedy and his band rocking various theaters and outdoor venues. The video comes in advance of the singer-guitarist’s fall U.S. solo tour.
Speaking of “The Great Beyond,” Kennedy said in a statement, “That one is probably least congruent sonically, but it’s so epic in nature that it felt appropriate. It’s about the act of dying, and I tried to paint a picture of grim details, with surreal imagery. It was maybe the most challenging lyric to write, and to get through singing, but it was a very necessary part of the story.”
Much of Year of the Tiger is inspired by the passing of Kennedy’s dad in 1974.
“They describe how much his death is still haunting me,” Kennedy said. “Getting to that darker side, I didn’t know how different it was going to be for me, and how intense those emotions still were. What I found hiding in the deep, dark corners of my psyche was that this was still very real — so it was really cathartic to work through it.”
