Low premiere new video 'Try to Sleep' starring ... John Stamos? Yes! Watch it here -- EXCLUSIVE


Duluth, Minnesota band Low have spent the last two decades crafting moody, minimalist soundscapes that provide backdrops to their narratives of heartbreak and loss.

John Stamos has spent those same decades raising the Olsen twins, hitting “Kokomo” sticks for the Beach Boys, carving out a Broadway career, and becoming a beloved component of Glee.

Those two disparate forces have come together for Low’s new video “Try to Sleep,” which stars Stamos. You can check out the exclusive premiere of the clip after the jump.

It turns out the idea was born out of Stamos’ enthusiasm for the band. “I’m actually good friends with their producer Matt Beckley,” Stamos explains, “and he had played me some of the record while they were making it. When it came time for them to cast the video, they asked if I’d like to be involved. I liked the concept. The new record is on all the time at my place.” At ours too, John.

“Try to Sleep” is the first single from the band’s new album C’Mon, which hit the streets today.

    They’re a great band! Glad to see them getting some love on the national scene!

  • Brain Fits

    I agree, great band. Check out their Great Destroyer album, specifically the song “when I go Deaf”

    • Mark

      When I go Deaf, and Death of a Salesman are fantastic songs!

  • Karyn

    I wonder if john stamos ever gets tired of being incredibly hot.

    • Your Queen

      Do you ever get tired of being a simpleton?

      • deedee

        wow. unnecessarily negative.

      • Agnes

        I don’t know about Karyn, but, yes, I do. ;)

      • Chai

        I’ll second deedee – there was no need for that.

    • gina

  • cyn

    i love this video!

  • znt

    Low is an awesome band. And their new album C’mon is amazing. Love the video!

  • Margie

    I like it but I don’t get it. Why is he pretending to sing? Or is he actually singing with the band?

    • Allison

      I think they’re supposed to be singing along to the radio. Or – it’s like Robert Downey Jr. in Elton John’s “I Want Love” video.

  • Ian

    this is the way Don Draper should go at the final show’s end, orrrr not

  • Cristin


  • MBB

    I thinks is a cool video and a great song! I never would have seen it if “Dr. Tony Gates” wasn’t in it! Thanks for bringing it to my attention! It’s now on my faves list.

  • Walter P.

    Who knew Stamos was cool enough to like Low? That’s amazing.

  • Vincent

    Stamos + Low = GENIUS!

  • alex

    it’s nice when celebrities help promote up and coming bands that they genuinely like.. great way to get the word out

    • sean

      up and coming bands? lol. this band is legendary and has been around for almost 20 years…one of the best bands ever, up and coming? dude leave your basement once in awhile!

      • alex

        get your panties out of a bunch sean. i just meant bands that aren’t as well known and i was giving props to the band. my bad for phrasing it wrong but no need to be a pretentious ass. “ooohh i’m super cool, i knew them first!!” everyone has bands they knew first. get over yourself.

  • Ian

    btw I neglected to mention I’ve been a Low fan since the mid 90s – I am glad they are still around and will continue to get more recognition! huzzah – nice video

  • Lucy

    Can’t decide if Low gets mega cool points for working with John Stamos or if he gets cool points for working with THEM! Great tune and a rock solid video…
