Leif Vollebekk shares a live version of ‘I’m Not Your Lover,‘ recorded at The Troubadour in Los Angeles back in 2020 – out now via Secret City Records / Remote Control Records. “This was the first time we played the song live, a couple of months before the lockdowns. It was a beautiful sold-out show at one of my favourite venues,” Leif explains. “When I first heard the live recording,” he continues “I thought it sounded better than the record.” Its accompanying video, directed by close collaborator Kaveh Nabatian, captures once again the essence of Leif’s music and its connectivity to nature.
Nabatian, who has directed over five videos for the artist, shares his impression of collaborating with Leif: “I love working with Leif because sometimes we get to make videos like this, simple and full of vibes. We find a landscape that evokes the energy of the song, bring a minuscule crew, some nice lenses, and just improvise. It’s a great hang, and somehow the performance and the light and the music coalesce into something greater than the sum of its parts.”
