Watch Matchbox 20's "Overjoyed" Video

Matchbox Twenty is back with another tune off North, their fourth full-length and first album of all-new material in a decade. "Overjoyed," premiering exclusively on HuffPost Entertainment and AOL Music, tells the story of an expecting couple.

The accompanying video -- available above -- features lead singer Rob Thomas crooning his way over MB20's characteristically simple music (consistent drumming and an expanding instrumental hook). As Thomas sings of being "overjoyed," we see a young, pregnant woman begin to walk backwards. Soon we're at the couple's wedding, then in their school classroom where they trade notes.

This video is strikingly different from the one used to promote "She's So Mean," the album's lead single. In the "She's So Mean" video, a lithe woman listens to music and dances around in her underwear.

Watch the new video above and take a trip through "She's So Mean" and classic MB20 in the gallery below. North is in stores Sept. 4.
