‘Time Loving You’ is a beautiful union of soul, gospel and folk. Taken off Laurie Levine’s 4th studio album, ‘Border Crossing’, this single highlights Laurie’s musical journey from her folk roots to her new found rock n soul sound.
The video is an up close and personal filming of Laurie and her band recording the song at Stoep Studio. The video captures both the intimacy of the performance as well as the heartfelt beauty of the song. Viewers get a peek behind the scenes of the musicians recording the song and the video captures the joyful spirit of the recording process.
Says Levine: ‘Time Loving You’ is the last track off the album. It is an apocalyptic love song and celebrates the endurance of true love. It ends with a gospel choir and a horn section. And I hope that it makes people shimmy, clap, stomp their feet and sing along’.
The video was filmed and edited by Barry Berk, writer and director of the film Sleeper’s Wake.
About ‘Border Crossing’
Border Crossing, Laurie’s latest album, is a revelation of what can happen when comfort zones are jettisoned, old habits sent packing and boundaries trampled on.
Recorded during the first half of 2013 at Johannesburg’s Stoep Studio by Sama award-winning producer, Dan Roberts, the 11-track album displays Levine’s ongoing love affair with the folk and country that has driven her previous three albums – Unspoken (2007), Living Room (2009), and Six Winters (2011).
But, true to its title, Border Crossing also goes on an adventure in search of other sounds that can serve Levine’s often-extraordinary tales of emotional dislocation, leaving and homecoming, and, mostly, love.
‘This album is both an extension of and a departure from the songs that I’ve played before,’ says Levine of Border Crossing. ‘It’s something familiar and something new. It’s a piece of me right here, right now and I can’t wait to share it.’
Other hot tracks off the album include ‘Stealing my Love’ (which has just been playlisted on Highveld Stereo, and Kfm among others), ‘She Trusts You’ and ‘Last One Standing’ not to mention tracks like ‘Gone For A While’ and ‘Lost And Found’ which hark back to Laurie’s country roots.
With a successful UK tour in 2012 and rave reviews for Six Winters internationally (No Depression gave it 10/10 and Uncut gave it 8/10) Border Crossing is set to be the record that firmly places Levine where she deserves to be: crossing borders the world over to take her music to new fans.
