Gode nyheter fra Leif Vollebekk
Første låt og video fra hans kommende album kan sees og høres nå.
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.
