Watch John Mellencamp’s Video for His Charged New Song ‘Eyes on the Prize’

On December 7, John Mellencamp will release a new album titled Other People’s Stuff. As its title suggests, the LP will be comprised of songs from over the years that he’s recorded in one form or another, presented in new formats.

“Most, if not all, of the songs on Other People’s Stuff come from the Great American Songbook,” said Mellencamp in a statement. “These are songs that have been recorded over the last 40 years of my career, but had never been put together as one piece of work. Now, they have.”

Speaking of “statements,” his new video for “Eyes on the Prize” definitely makes one:

1. “To The River” (originally from 1993’s Human Wheels)
