John Prine Premieres New Video Featuring Dan Auerbach, Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Sturgill Simpson

John Prine has released a new video for “Knockin’ On Your Screen Door” that features a bevy of special guests, including Dan Auerbach, Dave Cobb, Elizabeth Cook, David Ferguson, Jason Isbell, Jeremy Ivey, Margo Price, Amanda Shires, Sturgill Simpson and more.

The clip, directed by David McClister, was filmed at some of Prine’s favorite places throughout Nashville. The song is from Prine’s new album, The Tree of Forgiveness, which recently debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart with over 54,000 equivalent albums sold in its first week—a career high chart position and sales week for the singer.

The album, his first featuring new material in over 13 years, also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums chart, No. 2 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and No. 2 on Billboard’s Rock Albums chart. It was produced by Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A, and features special guests Brandi Carlile (harmony vocals), Jason Isbell (electric guitar) and Amanda Shires (fiddle and background vocals).

In celebration of the release, Prine performed the album’s first single, “Summer’s End,” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert with Sturgill Simpson and Brandi Carlile. He’s currently on tour in support of the new record and just announced a New Year’s Eve show at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House with Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats and special guest Iris DeMent. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 13 at 10:00 am.
