Football is back! So in honor of the gridiron’s return, why not celebrate with… a subtly haunting folk music video?

Hear us out: up-and-coming singer-songwriter Jesse Woods was once a standout wide receiver for Texas A&M, but he’s since retreated to (where else?) Austin to hone his musical craft. Last month he released Get Your Burdens Lifted, and now he’s got a video for album highlight “Tumbleweeds” — and you can watch it exclusively here.

Directed by Jeff Bednarz, the clip matches the tune’s tone with ominous, arty shots of roaming horses, untamed trees, and of course the man himself strumming on his guitar.
