Smith Westerns have released the first video from their forthcoming album "Soft Will" -- the Alan Del Rio Ortiz-directed treatment for "Varsity" is basically a three-minute make-out session between up-and-coming model Marcel Castenmiller and his girlfriend Sara Powell. AND WHO WOULD COMPLAIN ABOUT WATCHING THAT?
"Soft Will" will be released via Mom+Pop on June 25.
