The Offspring has premiered a new live video for the band’s stripped-down version of “Gone Away.”

The clip, filmed at the Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville, finds frontman Dexter Holland delivering a heartfelt, solo rendition of the song with just his voice and a piano.

“Many of you have lost someone close to you, I know that I certainly have,” Holland says at the beginning of the performance. “When I’ve been singing this song lately, I’ve been thinking about that.”

You can watch the video streaming now on YouTube.

The Offspring included the piano-led version of “Gone Away” on their new album, Let the Bad Times Roll, which was released in April. It’s also featured on the newly released Gone Away EP, along with a live and “alternative” recording, as well as the original, electric “Gone Away” from 1997.
