Local folkie Avi Jacob will release a video Thurs. Feb. 12 for his new single “Cannonball,” which was recorded and mixed by Charleston producer Wolfgang Ryan Zimmerman.

The track includes Jacob on vocals and guitar, Zimmerman on drums, Elliot A. Smith on keys, and Matthew Alexander on bass. Jacob says the song is about a local chick. “‘Cannonball’ is a metaphor I came up with about someone who fucks up everything in their path or who fucks up the people they are close to by lying and manipulating,” he says.

Shot by 1027 Films around Savannah and Charleston, the video also features local puppeteer Will Schutze’s Mr. Bonetangles.

Jacob, along with Billie Fountain, will perform at King Dusko (541 King St.) on Valentine’s Day at 9 p.m.
