Why do we like this?

“Played for Keeps" is the latest single from Noël Wells' full-length (and fittingly titled) album, It’s So Nice!The song - written in an afternoon while Wells was staying at Connie Britton’s house shooting a pilot in Austin, TX - was produced by James Jones and David Thomas Jones. The song has that specific mix of West Coast influenced melancholy and delicate whimsy. It's bluesy with a strong dash of fun sprinkled throughout.

Directed by Tim Nackashi (OK Go, Robyn, Death Cab For Cutie), the music video was shot spur of the moment on the closed-off streets of Los Angeles following the LA Marathon on a GoPro. The drone shots were manned by cinematographer Kit Pennebacker, son of documentarian D.A. Pennebacker (RIP).

You might remember Wells from her tenures on SNL and Master of None. “Played for Keeps" confirms her theatrical knacks certainly extend beyond comedy. Wells is opening for the British artist, Sam Fender, this fall during his North American tour. Please check them out!
