In the clip, Elvis Costello plays band leader to the New Basement Tapes, which includes Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops and Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, along with producer T Bone Burnett, while they record a rollocking take on the track, “Six Months in Kansas City (Liberty Street).”
