PREMIERE: Juan Wauters Is Just a Man on the Street in “El Hombre de la Calle” Video

The Uruguayan songwriter introduces Juan Pablo, among other identities, in the new video.

At the end of May, former Beet and current Captured Tracks–signee Juan Wauters will be releasing his fourth solo studio album for the label just four months after dropping his LP La Onda de Juan Pablo back in January. As a prequel, Introducing Juan Pablo is designed to reorient listeners to Wauters’ Uruguayan roots, reclaiming the “Pablo” of his birth name, which his adopted country tends to dismiss as a negligible middle name.

As a part of this campaign, Wauters is sharing a new video for his interpretation of “El Hombre de la Calle” by Uruguayan singer and composer Jaime Roos, taken from the forthcoming Introducing. In Matthew Volz’s video, Wauters takes on a number of different identities, each wandering New York’s Grand Central Station with profound uncertainty—an apt complement to the distinctly somber tune.

Introducing Juan Pablo is out May 31 on Captured Tracks. Catch Wauters on the road at the dates below the video.
