singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leif Vollebekk has just shared his music video for “Elegy”. The track is the lead single from Leif’s upcoming record Twin Solitude, out February 24 on Secret City Records. NPR Music premiered “Elegy” last month via Songs We Love, praising it as “devastatingly beautiful” and adding “the song grabs you by the heart and pulls you into its hypnotic whorl of melancholia.”

Directed by Kaveh Nabatian, the “Elegy” video was filmed in a Florida beach town that Leif frequented as a child. During filming, he danced in the dunes through sunset, followed by Nabatian with a camera strapped to him and a speaker attached so they could hear the song. The pair danced up and down the dunes all day, until it got dark and they were kicked off the beach.

Vollebekk has just announced a New York show on February 28 at Mercury Lounge, a March 2nd album-launch show in his hometown part of Montréal en lumière at La Tulipe as well as European dates with Colorado folk artist Gregory Alan Isakov in March and April. He’ll return to North America in the late spring for a headlining tour, and dates will be announced shortly.
