‘Velocity’ Puts Spotlight on Kane Brown as Subject of Amazon Music’s Fifth Mini-Doc

For the fifth entry in its line of mini-documentaries, Amazon Music is putting the spotlight on Kane Brown with a behind-the-scenes look at the young country star that will arrive Thursday, accompanied by a live EP.

“Velocity” captures moments leading up to Brown’s headlining appearance at L.A.’s Staples Center Jan. 9, with his wife, managers, agent and  — Amazon promises — barber all discussing what let to his climb to the top of the country charts and arena headlining status.

Also Thursday, Amazon Music will release a service-exclusive live EP featuring songs from the Staples Center gig.

The Kane mini-doc is the first in the Amazon Music series to focus on a country artist. The previous four entries all focused on specific moments for more established artists, including a look at Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You,” 25th anniversary celebrations of the Beastie Boys’ “Ill Communication” and the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Ready to Die,” and a look at Sharon van Etten moving from the east coast to make her way out west.

Kane’s documentary is also the first to be released accompanied by an Amazon Original live EP. Amazon Music has put out ancillary musical material in connection with the other mini-docs, though. For the van Etten film, “Departure,” Amazon made available a new version of her song “Seventeen” cut by the singer with Norah Jones. The Biggie and Beastie Boys docs arrived with audio-only documentary companion pieces.

Amazon’s line of concert films — not to be confused with the documentaries — have typically come with exclusive digital audio EPs like Kane’s, including their live films of Jack White, the National and Kamasi Washington.
