LEIF VOLLEBEKK – ” I’m Not Your Lover “

Posted: November 25, 2021 in MUSIC

Leif Vollebekk is a Canadian indie folk singer-songwriter, whose 2017 album “Twin Solitude” was a shortlisted finalist for the 2017 Polaris Music Prize. 

“I’m Not Your Lover” is out today. But it’s not the version on the record. It’s a recording of the band and I playing it live, for the first time, at the Troubadour in LA. It was one of our last shows of 2020. When I first heard it, I thought it sounded better than the album version. It felt freer. Freer is good. And so it is now out there for you to imbibe. I hope it resonates for you, too. The video was directed by Kaveh Nabatian. We endeavoured to find footage of that night (to the many of you who sent material to us : thank you) but we couldn’t piece it together.

So we reshot the whole thing in the polar opposite location of that sweaty packed club in West Hollywood, the wilderness of Quebec. I like to think that’s where all tours eventually end and also begin. Speaking of, all tour dates for 2022 are now announced.

Thanks for the music, Olivier Fairfield (drums) Michael Felber (bass), Parker Shper (keys), Scotty Crowe (everything) Harris Shper (recording/mix)
