Garland Jeffreys’ new video “Coney Island Winter” is a striking collection of black and white photographs and film footage of America’s original playground set to a hard-charging rock n roll soundtrack.

“The video captures the desolation, but also the allure, the fantasy and the humor of Coney Island that still fills my memories,” says Garland, who grew up there.

“Coney Island Winter” was directed and assembled by Doug Webb and opens with footage from the 1952 short film documentary “Coney Island, U.S.A.” It also includes samples from a 1991 episode of PBS’s American Experience (“Coney Island”) and the evocative 2010 short film “Coney Island Dream”, filmed and edited by Joshua Brown.

Garland’s new ‘The King Of In Between’ will be released June 7 and features Lou Reed, Duncan Sheik, and was co-produced by Grammy-winner Larry Campbell. Garland will be previewing the new album with a headlining show at NYC’s Highline Ballroom April 30 and at Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble in Woodstock May 7.
