Aimee Mann and Ted Leo have revealed the first official video from their debut album as The Both. Directed by Daniel Ralston, “Milwaukee” is like a long lost cousin of the pair’s respective clips with Tom Scharpling — half music video, half comedy sketch routine. And as Leo told Rolling Stone, it’s also a fitting introduction to the album itself, which is rooted in a 2012 tour that lead to Mann joining Leo onstage for some of his solo sets.

“I think the song is a pretty good representation of how our writing meshes on this project,” he explained, “solid melodies and tight harmonies, forward movement but not going off the rails, some busier rocking parts meeting some spookier atmospherics, etc. And it speaks specifically of our friendship and some of the things that honestly did lead us to want to begin writing together.”
