The clip, directed by Jessie Hill, focuses on the two veteran actors preparing for a date. In the closing shot, both walk down the street together before the credits roll.

“In the midst of this time, it feels even more special to create a beautiful project about love,” Stone wrote upon sharing a snippet of the video earlier this week.

Watch the full clip below:

 

“Thank you so much [Susan Sarandon] for breathing life into a piece of art in such a wild time,” Stone wrote on Twitter earlier this week.

“There’s a specific sexiness to maturity, something to revere. So highly desirable. You really harnessed the wonder of new love. Forever grateful you beautiful woman.”

Of the clip’s leading man, Stone said “it was an honour having [Danny Glover] bring this song to life.”

“It was amazing to see Danny’s magic transcend through a screen. I’ve been a fan of his for so long… really a dream come true.”

‘Dance’ is Stone’s third single of the year thus far. The singer-songwriter returned in July with the St. Vincent-produced ‘Break’ – her first new original solo material in eight years.

She followed it up in September with ‘Unreal’, delivering an intimate acoustic rendition of the song on Colbert earlier this month.

All three tracks are set to feature on ‘Sixty Summers’, which will be Stone’s first solo album since 2012’s ‘By the Horns’.

Since then, she’s released two records as part of her folk duo with brother Angus Stone – 2014’s eponymous ‘Angus & Julia Stone’ and ‘Snow’ in 2017.

Earlier this year, Stone orchestrated the ‘Songs for Australia’ charity album, a compilation that saw the likes of The National and Kurt Vile covering songs by Australian artists for bushfire relief.

Stone herself also contributed to the album, performing a rendition of Midnight Oil‘s ‘Beds Are Burning’.
