WATCH: Wade Bowen’s “Where Phones Don’t Work”

Wade Bowen reveals three and a half minutes of striking visuals to accompany the latest single off his recent six-song EP “Where Phones Don’t Work.” Directed by Nick Livingston and filmed in both Bowen’s home state of Texas as well as Central Oregon, the official music video for “Phones Don’t Work” features scenic visuals of remote landscapes that live up to the song’s name. Written by Bowen, along with Aaron Raitiere and Rhett Akins – who joined Bowen’s recent Exit/In show that also earned buzz for surprise appearances by Charlie Worsham and ACM Entertainer of the Year Miranda Lambert – “Phones Don’t Work” yearns for the freedom of a technological escape:

Where I can’t see her picture
I can’t hear her voice
And even if I wanted to
I ain’t got a choice
That satellite signal is just outta reach
And she can’t get to me

I don’t know how many miles it’s gonna take
All I know is I ain’t hitting no brakes
‘Til I’m way past the place where it don’t hurt
‘Til she can’t call me
And I can’t call her
Hell, I don’t care
Anywhere phones don’t work

“Phones Don’t Work” follows lead single “When Love Comes Around” off the EP, with a full-length album planned for release later this year.
