Conor Oberst has shared the sentimental video for his song ‘You Are Your Mother’s Child’.
Click above to watch the Gregory Marinaccio-directed video for the track, which features on the Bright Eyes frontman’s most recent solo album, ‘Upside Down Mountain’. The track follows Oberst publicly accepting the apology of a woman who accused him of rape.
The singer recently issued a statement saying: “I have accepted Joanie Faircloth’s apology and retraction to clear my name. This has been extremely difficult and stressful for me personally and for those I love. I’m appreciative of the family, friends, fans and business partners who supported me throughout this and look forward to happier times as we all move forward with our lives.”
It came after Faircloth recently admitted that she fabricated a story calling it “100% false” and claiming she made the allegations for attention.
Earlier this year Oberst filed a defamation lawsuit against the woman who accused him of raping her when she was 16. Faircloth made the claim in the comments section of a lifestyle website. She then contacted Oberst’s lawyer and released a statement, which read: “The statements I made and repeated online and elsewhere over the past six months accusing Conor Oberst of raping me are 100% false. I made up those lies about him to get attention while I was going through a difficult period in my life and trying to cope with my son’s illness. I publicly retract my statements about Conor Oberst, and sincerely apologise to him, his family, and his fans for writing such awful things about him. I realize that my actions were wrong and could undermine the claims of actual sexual assault victims and for that I also apologize. I’m truly sorry for all the pain that I caused.”
Oberst, who played Latitude festival this weekend, will play Glasgow ABC on July 21.
