Scott Avett of The Avett Brotherstells NPR Music that their new video for “Ain’t No Man” is “about a character who is dealing with fear and his journey to do what he was born to do.”

NPR Music’s Robin Hilton writes that Avett, who directed the video…

…happily sings his way through the song, he observes other passengers — a mother corralling her kids, stony faced business executives, and people of various faiths (a priest, men in yamakas, several others wearing taqiyahs or hijabs) — before slogging through the ticket line and security for a lengthy pat-down. But when he finally emerges on the other side of the terminal, a large group of smiling fellow travelers joins him for the joyful chorus, almost in defiance of every awful thing one normally expects when it comes to flying.

Check out the video below, and be on the lookout for a cameo appearance from a car racing legend.

WXPN Welcomes The Avett Brothers to the Mann tomorrow evening, May 14th. Go to the XPN Concert Calendar for tickets and more information about the show.
