Music video premiere from Chuck Prophet; "Wish Me Luck" stars actor Robert Longstreet (of Pineapple Express) and was directed by Ryan Browne. The charming adventures of a pair of middle-aged man-children (Prophet and Longstreet) is a lovely accompaniment to Prophet's soulful song, with a touching ending.
“Wish Me Luck” is the newest single from Prophet’s just released thirteenth studio album, Night Surfer on Yep Roc Records. Get it here.
Night Surfer was recorded in Prophet’s hometown of San Francisco at Decibelle Recording Studio, and in Nashville’s Alex the Great with producer Brad Jones (Cotton Mather, Matthew Sweet, Imperial Drag).
Says Prophet: "There are a lot of little stories on Night Surfer. But they seem to add up to one big story. What that overarching story is, I am not really sure, but I’ll know it when it punches me in the face. It’s loosely conceptual but universal all the same, I’d contend. And of course, you’ll find it laced with humor and a persistent anxiety throughout. And while I had originally considered all this leaning toward the dystopian, now I wonder. The future might just save us. But we have to get there first. Night Surfer is all about a musical path forward, about looking around and imagining where we’ll be in 20 years if we just follow that path."
