Norwegian artist Sondre Lerche released a brand new, 10 minute long song “Dead Of The Night” and announced he will embark on an extensive North American and European tour next year. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 15, at 9:00 am local time. On the heels of a sold out concert in New York earlier this week, Lerche will return to Los Angeles for a performance at Largo this Thursday, October 14.
This new song was a different beast than any other I had encountered. It kept on growing, and for the first time in my almost 30-years of attempted songwriting I felt like I was writing a song that might not ever end.Sondre Lerche
“I left LA on March 14th, 2020, just as I was about to start launching the Patience album and tour. That record had been a 7 year long process, and I was not about to let it fall prey of what I assumed then would be a month or two of global turbulence. My native Norway felt safer and more predictable amidst this unforeseen uncertainty, so I returned home, where I’ve remained ever since.
Less than a year later, this winter, the world was still in a static form of chaos. Nothing seemed a sure thing. But to my endless joy, my creative juices were flowing and I was writing songs and lyrics I never dreamed I’d arrive at.
I thought the most intense part of this new songwriting process was over, but things were just getting started. This new song was a different beast than any other I had encountered. It kept on growing, and for the first time in my almost 30-years of attempted songwriting I felt like I was writing a song that might not ever end. The scope and perspective of it kept expanding — zooming further out than I’d ever been able to, dissecting the world, and slowly zooming back in, like in an old noir-film that finds the protagonist himself, and the object of his desire, amidst the myriad of everybody else’s equally intense and ordinary lives. “
“Dead Of The Night” is the first song from a forthcoming project to be announced in 2022.
