Noah Gundersen releases video for title track Lover
22 July 2019
European tour in January 2020 includes two dates in Holland
Acclaimed musician Noah Gundersen has announced the release of his sensual video for Lover, the title track from Gundersen’s fourth album, which arrives August 23 via Cooking Vinyl.
For Gundersen, the song is deeply personal. 'I’ve never really cried to my own songs like I have with this one. Somehow I’m able to see myself so clearly in it. Andy [collaborator Andy Park] and I wrote and recorded most of it in one night, early on in the process of making the record. The second verse just came out as an ad-lib and we never changed it. Sometimes you tell yourself something over and over, just hoping that it will eventually come true, trying to fill an unspeakable void.'
The Seattle-based Gundersen recently released the emotionally charged song and video, Robin Williams, which Consequence Of Sound wrote 'might make you cry, too. Evoking the memory of the beloved comedian, Gundersen wrestles with the finality of life.'
Recorded over two years at Seattle’s The Crumb studio with longtime collaborator, producer/engineer Andy D. Park (Death Cab For Cutie, K. Flay, Pedro The Lion), LOVER sees Gundersen continuing to veer towards an increasingly intimate and intense creative approach, wedding intricate beats and warm, natural instrumentation to a series of stark, almost dreamlike, new songs. Rich with patience and grace, songs like Older and Out of Time reveal a remarkably gifted songwriter-artist in the midst of confrontation with life’s toughest truths, somehow emerging with even greater self-awareness and understanding.
'This record is deeply personal. It’s about love, it’s about failure, it’s about drugs, it’s about sex, it’s about age, it’s about regret, it’s about itself (very meta, I know) and it’s about finding peace. I think it’s the most I’ve ever put of myself into something. It’s been cathartic. I’ve cried a lot.'
