Leif Vollebekk’s new album “Revelation” out September 27

Today, Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leif Vollebekk announces his brand-new album, Revelation, to be released on September 27, with new single “Moondog”. The new release will be available in digital, CD and LP formats, and is his third release on the Montreal-based label. Dates for his fall 2024 European headline tour have also been announced and tickets can be purchased HERE on Friday, May 31st at 11AM CET.

The 11 tracks on Vollebekk’s Revelation combine narrative lyrics and many one-take lead vocal performances with cinematic arrangements, gorgeous sonics, well-placed space and lush orchestration. Vollebekk’s Revelation songwriting process was inspired by an exploration that began with Carl Jung’s I Ching and continued into the science of alchemy and the mystery of the divine. The final result is at once organic, earthy and celestial, with themes of nature — water, astral constellations, mortality – woven into a meditation on living in an ever-changing present laced with existential doubt, the search for a higher power.

Moondog,” the first single, offers firm proof of this juxtaposition with its “meditation on love,” fateful meetings, family, and magic, with a lyrical nod to “tessellation” (a pattern of geographic shapes covering a surface). “Was that the wind howling through the trees/Or was that you/Calling to me?” The video accompanying the song was directed by longtime collaborator Kaveh Nabatian and was filmed in Norway.
