Han er kanskje kanadisk, men med det navnet og med norsk bestefar, så kan vi vel uten å ta for hardt i kalle han litt vår egen. Han gjorde stor suksess med sitt forrige album, Twin Solitude fra 2017, som både ble nominert til Polaris Music Prize, og streamet i overkant av 20 millioner ganger.


Needless to say, when I saw Axelle's choreography for the first time, I was blown away .

Det nye albumet, New Ways, slippes 1. november 2019 via Secret City / Playground. Den første singelen, Hot Tears, er ute nå, med en lekker musikkvideo.


Hot Tears is a song that was written when my senses were much more focused and I saw colours much more vividly. The sky often looked like it could have easily been pulled from scenes of [Terrence Malick’s] The Tree of Life. It was the last song I wrote for the record. It was all recorded live: vocals, drums and piano. I wanted this song to sound as hot and rough as possible and make the lyrics fight their way through.  The video, beautifully directed by long-time friend and collaborator Kaveh Nabatian, was Leif’s idea : For months I had been imagining a video with golden light pouring out behind a silhouette when the minor chord hit. Kaveh introduced me to Axelle Munezero : she moved the way I heard the music. Needless to say, when I saw Axelle's choreography for the first time, I was blown away.
