Here's Jackson Browne's New Single 'My Cleveland Heart'

2004 Rock Hall inductee Jackson Browne has a new single and music video out today that's got Cleveland right there in the title, so it's definitely good.

The origin story for "My Cleveland Heart," Browne tells Rolling Stone, is this:

Browne first encountered the music to “My Cleveland Heart” after [Val] McCallum left a CD on his windshield with a note attached. After listening to it for months, Browne thought up an idea for the lyrics when he was driving around Cleveland, Ohio, and came across a building in the woods. “The person I was driving with said, ‘That’s Cleveland Heart,'” Browne tells Rolling Stone. “‘That’s where they make artificial hearts.’ I said, ‘Oh, I could use one of those!'”

Phoebe Bridgers makes an appearance in the video to eat Browne's "worn-out, useless heart" before he gets a new one.
