    Watch: Shawn Colvin's "All Fall Down" Video Premieres on YouTube; Colvin Performs on "CBS This Morning"

    Shawn Colvin's video for the title track to her new album, All Fall Down, received its world premiere on YouTube today. The video was shot in Colvin's hometown of Austin and directed by Raymond Schlogel/Underground Planet. Watch it below.

    Colvin continues to mark the release of the new album and her memoir, Diamond in the Rough, this week bringing the celebration to Los Angeles with a live reading and performance at the Barnes & Noble at The Grove at the Farmers Market this evening and a concert at the El Rey Theatre on Tuesday with Buddy Miller, the producer of All Fall Down, and bassist Viktor Krauss, who performs on the album.

    Check out the official "All Fall Down" video here, via Shawn Colvin's YouTube channel:

    Colvin, Miller, and Krauss were in New York City on Saturday for an appearance on CBS This Morning. Colvin—"known for her extraordinary songs and incredible guitar playing," says the show—spoke with co-hosts Jeff Glor and Rebecca Jarvis about the new book, and she, Miller, and Krauss performed "All Fall Down" as well as the classic Colvin tune "Sunny Came Home" for the show's "Second Cup Café." Watch the interview and performances at cbsnews.com.

    Colvin is featured in the New York Times' Texas Report from TexasMonthly. She spoke with writer Andy Langer, the afternoon DJ at KGSR in Austin, about Diamond in the Rough.

    "Ms. Colvin said she was careful not to let Diamonds evolve into either a self-help book or a name-calling laundry list of ways she thinks she has been wronged," writes Langer. "Instead, like many of Ms. Colvin’s greatest hits, the book is candid about her heartaches but also comically self-deprecating."

    Colvin also spoke about the new book and album with Austin American-Statesman's Brad Buchholz, who calls All Fall Down "superb."

    "Colvin's memoir feels a lot like her songs—naked, vulnerable, dappled with restlessness and longing—as it intertwines twin storylines of music and sorrow," writes Bucholz. "As she's proved on her albums, Colvin is very good with words that reflect the scariest interior sensations."

    Bucholz goes on to describe All Fall Down as "the most harmonically complex record she's ever done, with jazz guitarist Bill Frisell dabbing the canvas with lovely, melancholy hues."
