Today Nils Lofgren has released the official music-video for “Ain’t The Truth Enough,” which features Ringo Starr on drums, Kevin McCormick on bass, and "E Street Choir" vocalist Cindy Mizelle. You can watch it directly above. The track is the opener on Nils' newest album Mountains, which also features guests Neil Young, the Howard (University) Gospel Choir, Ron Carter, and the late, great David Crosby.
Written in the wake of the January 6th insurrection, the track reckons with the ways that misinformation and demagoguery can tear families apart and silo us in our own realities. “It’s about a fierce mother dealing with her husband who's just home from the Jan. 6 insurrection,” states Lofgren. “No bull, just the brutal truth.”
