Clark never explicitly references his relationship with his mom in the lyrics to “Pearl Cadillac”, leaving the passive listener to it’s a run-of-the-mill love song. A deeper dive into the words, however, reveals the true nature of the track (“You say I owe you nothin’; If I could, I’d give you the world; You made somethin’ from nothin’; I thank God for such a beautiful girl”).In the new “Pearl Cadillac” music video, the mother-son bond alluded to in the song becomes a powerful visual focal point. “This is my first video on 35mm b&w film,” Clark said of the video in a Facebook post. “We bought all of the film in the US to make this happen. Clément [Oberto] the director was really passionate about this story and so he did his thing in telling the story of Pearl Cadillac. I [sic] Just tried not to waste the film. Great video shoot experience. Thanks to everyone that made it happen.
