Dierks Bentley Continues ‘Black’ Short Film With ‘Pick Up’ [WATCH]
Dierks Bentley has released the third installment of his four-part video series, all featuring songs from his upcoming album Black. The newest video, for his song "Pick Up," begins right where the last clip, for "What the Hell Did I Say," left off -- and has quite the twist at the end.
The Black video series began with a music video for "I'll Be the Moon," which introduced viewers to a love triangle. Things got more complicated in the clip for "What the Hell Did I Say," as the affair was discovered. "Pick Up" begins the story of the aftermath, with the jilted boyfriend showing his villainous side. All of the clips were filmed in black-and-white, adding an extra layer of cinematic drama to the story.
"When you're in the throes of a relationship, it can be crazy and lustful, even obsessive and jealous," Bentley tells Rolling Stone Country. ""Pick Up" drops into the sequence as that point when you just have to be closer to your girl. For the storyline and plot of these videos, Wes [Edwards, director] definitely takes it there and puts a shocking spin on it."
Black, a nod to Bentley's wife Cassidy's maiden name, is set for release on May 27. The video series is emblematic of the album as a whole, on which Bentley hopes to tell the story of a relationship, with all of its ups and downs.
"It's a romantic album, but it's not all happy," he says. "It's just about love ... the edgier and darker sides of it, too."
