Australian Courtney Barnett  and American Kurt Vile may be separated by entire oceans and continents, but they’ve found a way to turn the story of their long-distance friendship into a sweet little melody—that is, the newest single from their forthcoming collaboration album Lotta Sea Lice, “Continental Breakfast.”

Accompanying the track is a video that features rare footage of each of the slacker-rock idols in their respective natural habitats: Barnett exchanges kisses with her partner and her cat, tends to her garden and plays basketball with her friends, while Vile chugs four beers, goes on a nature walk and hangs out with his family.

To shoot the video, director Danny Cohen spent time with Barnett and Vile in Melbourne and Philadelphia while they had time off from recording and touring: The Video is Shot on 16mm, the mini-documentary captures honest moments that show the loving and playful nature of both Courtney and Kurt. It was such a treat to experience life with Courtney and Kurt in their natural habitats. It really left me feeling like part of the family and hopefully fans can feel that too.”
