For Eli Young Band, their new single “Dust” came from the desire to write a song about just that — dust.

“We wrote that at a songwriters retreat,” bandmember Jon Jones told about the track, which appears on their new album 10,000 Towns. “I remember we just started with the word ‘dust,’ we wanted to do something with that.”

“All four of us in the band have wives who come from very small towns,” Jones continued. “And I was thinking of my wife, who I feel was always meant to live in a big city. And she always felt that way growing up. So I just had her in my mind — it’s not exactly a love song for her, but she was definitely on my mind when we wrote that song.”

The band’s brand-new music video for “Dust” brings this person to life. Watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the “Dust” video below.

In the video, the song’s protagonist is shown alone in a bar. She’s sick of the town she’s living in and the guy she’s dating, so she decides to do something about it: She hops into her car to hit the open road and leave it all behind.

Filmed in Tennessee in April, the clip shows, among other things, the process it takes for a cameraman to film a moving car.
