Jackson Brown Releases Video for “Minutes To Downtown;” Kicks Off New Tour

Jackson Browne is sharing his new video for the song “Minutes to Downtown,” featured on the album Downhill From Everywhere, as he kicks off his new tour

Videos by American Songwriter

“The song is about wanting to be somewhere else, but for whatever reasons, you’re tied to the place where you live and the things you do,” Browne says of the track. “So I wanted it to be me driving around. To me, the video has a distinctive feature, which is that nothing happens. You don’t arrive anywhere, right?”

Minutes slip away, minutes become days / Minutes to Downtown, minutes to the Coast Highway / Forever on this freeway dreaming of my getaway / Don’t know how I’m still in L.A., Browne sings in the chorus.

Directed by Browne’s son, Ryan, the video simply shares footage of Browne driving around downtown L.A. Simple enough. Check it out below.

Browne kicked off his tour on Friday, June 3, the same day as the video release, in Maryland Heights, Missouri. The 71-year-old singer will be making stops in Kansas City, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Boston, Baltimore, and Los Angeles before wrapping on September 25 in Morrison, Colorado.
