Eleanor Friedberger has revealed the visuals for latest single "Never Is A Long Time", featuring old SXSW clips of lots of acts.

The video contains an assortment of live clips featuring acts such as Jeff Tweedy, Wesley Willis, The Jayhawks, Old 97s, and more.

Speaking about the visuals, Friedberger says: "When I was a student at the University of Texas, South by Southwest meant seeing five shows a day instead of five shows a week. There was no line to see Iggy Pop perform on a small outdoor stage off 6th Street or watch Wayne Coyne conduct his parking lot experiment. These were very formative years for me and watching these scenes, shot in 1996, is a good reminder that I still aspire to make music for my 19-year-old self, not music entirely dictated by computers and commercial interests."

The song appears on latest LP New View, which is out now via Frenchkiss.
