Watch: The Lumineers release new video for ‘It Wasn’t Easy to Be Happy for You’

The Lumineers have dropped a new video for “It Wasn’t Easy to Be Happy for You” from their forthcoming EP, Junior Sparks.

The Kevin Phillips-directed video is a gloomy clip that follows the video’s protagonist Junior Sparks as he meets a peculiar mysterious woman, who ends up being imaginary. The video opens with Sparks smoking a joint on his car beside the imaginary woman in the middle of a field before she eventually walks off into the fog.

“We try to speak kindly after a breakup, but sometimes the truth is a different story,” frontman Wes Schultz explains of the song and clip. “This is the introduction to Junior Sparks, through his eyes and first-love heartbreak.”
