They’re two old friends enjoying “Wasted Days” during a late summer sunset.

The video for the new John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen song “Wasted Days” debuted on Wednesday, September 29th, hours after the song itself was unveiled. Mellencamp and Springsteen play a game of cards in a kitchen, then they go out the front of a garage to trade verses and join on the chorus in the vid.

“We watch our lives just fade away to more wasted days,” the duo sings on the track. It’s an engaging Americana song with a warm patina and easy melody.

The video was directed by long-time Springsteen collaborator Thom Zimny and filmed in New Jersey earlier this month. Springsteen and Mellencamp were spotted on Bay Avenue in Bay Head together on, although they were not being filmed at the time.

Springsteen, who lives in Colts Neck, visited Mellencamp in Indiana earlier this year to record material for the upcoming Mellencamp record.

“Wasted Days,” the first recorded collaboration for Mellencamp and Springsteen, is the first single from Mellencamp’s upcoming album, due in 2022.
