Patrick Watson Book Quebec Dates on Spring Tour, Unveil New Music Video
Patrick Watson was among the many names announced for this year's Bonnaroo festival, and it turns out that this date is just part of a more extensive spring schedule that includes a number of Quebec shows.

The Montreal songwriter and his band will launch a European jaunt later this month. They will return to these shores in late March, at which point they will play a series of North American dates including six gigs in their home province. The Bonnaroo appearance comes a couple of months later in June.

See the schedule below. Scroll past that to watch a newly unveiled music video for the track "Blackwind" from 2012's Adventures in Your Own Backyard. The clip for this orchestrally inclined baroque-folk number was created by Chloe Poirier-Sauve as part of a video-making competition. The dreamscape-style animation appears to have been created using sand art, as a hand emerges in parts to adjust the image.

Watson said in a statement, "It struck us as more than a music video: it stands on its own as a work of art."
