QRTR Track Of The Week #17
07 NOVEMBER 2019
Leif Vollebekk – Apalachee Plain
This week’s Track Of The Week is by Leif Vollebekk, a Montreal adopted singer-songwriter. He just released his highly anticipated fourth full-length album ‘New Ways’ on November 1st, the follow-up to his breakthrough Polaris Music Prize finalist, Juno nominated record Twin Solitude.
In the end, New Ways is a document of everything Vollebekk felt, the way each moment arrived and moved through him. Whereas Twin Solitude was about self-reflection, New Ways is about engaging and changing, touching and being touched. It’s a physical record, with louder and tighter grooves, and the rawest lyrics the musician has ever recorded. A portrait of beauty, desire, longing, risk, remembrance—without an instant of regret. Apalachee Plain is a beautiful, honest song that is the perfect soundtrack for this autumn. Waste no time and take a listen to the track below for yourself.
