Watch: Leif Vollebekk – ‘Southern Star’

Leif Vollebekk reveals ‘Southern Star’ a poignant ballad as second single, including backing vocals by Australian singer-songwriter Angie McMahon and steel guitar by legendary Cindy Cashdollar. Watch the accompanying video, directed by longtime collaborator and award-winning filmmaker Kaveh Nabatian, below!

“I think this might be my favourite song I have ever written, and it took a while to reveal itself,” says Leif. “I spent about two years waiting for the last verse to come. It was recorded in one live take with me on piano, Oliver on drums, Shahzad on bass and Angie, who happened to be in town, singing harmony. We added Rob Moose on strings and Cindy Cashdollar on steel guitar. I asked her to stretch out at the end, and, when she did, I just sat there in the control room, completely blown away.” The new album Revelation, is set to be released on September 27.
