Don DiLego, ‘Don’t Bury Me Alive’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]

Singer, songwriter and banjo picker Don DiLego is premiering the music video for his track “Don’t Bury Me Alive” exclusively for readers of The Boot.

The sparse, black-and-white “Don’t Bury Me Alive” clip is an ideal setting for its accompanying track, which uses vivid storytelling to explore the idea of sticking around.

“Don’t bury me alive / No, don’t bury me alive / I am not done living / So keep me by your side,” sings DiLego in the song’s chorus, adding in second verse, “Where are all the winters? / Where are all the storms? / Broken all my windows / And kept the fire warm / The morning, it still lingers like a railway train / Stuck between the changes that never really came.”

Readers can press play above to watch the “Don’t Bury Me Alive” video.

Fans may remember DiLego from his work with Beautiful Small Machines, an electro-twang duo responsible for an infectious, “hootenanny bluegrass”-style cover of M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” that went viral back in 2012. Before that, DiLego wrote the soundtrack for a feature film called Ranchero and wrote with rocker Jesse Malin.

“Don’t Bury Me Alive” appears on DiLego’s Magnificent Ram A album, released on July 15; the record is available for purchase on DiLego’s website. Visit DeLego’s tour calendar for details on upcoming shows, including a set as part of the Outlaw Roadshow‘s stop at Nashville’s Mercy Lounge on Sept. 17.
