Video Premiere: Tinted Windows’ “Back With You”

September 17th, 2009 by Rolling Stone Leave a reply »

When supergroup Tinted Windows hit the road last month, guitarist James Iha brought along his Flipcam and shot the footage of Taylor Hanson, Adam Schlesinger and Bun E. Carlos that became their new video for “Back With You” (watch its premiere, above). “Yes, I shot the video, we had a budget of $400,000,” he jokes. “We just shot all this cheesy fun road footage. I always think of that Journey video for ‘Faithfully’ where he’s shaving off his moustache and Neal Schon is on the private jet playing guitar with headphones … this is what we aspire to. I don’t think we scaled those heights, though.”

To say the shoot was low-fi is an understatement. “I had a playback of the song on my iPhone,” Iha says. “I turned the volume all the way up and would follow Taylor around and shoot him in the alley outside the show and in the hotel lobby.”
