Here’s Jimmy LaValle of The Album Leaf on how the track came together:
“As a fan of Peter’s, I asked him to play violin for a song from Perils from the Sea. What he came up with blew me away. His solo work also blew me away so I asked him about making a song together. He came to Los Angeles to record his new record and when he was finished, we met for the first time, ate breakfast, went into my studio and wrote & recorded “Never Held a Baby” in an afternoon.”
In other band news, on July 15, The Album Leaf will host the debut screening of its new documentary film, BEYOND THERE, which was directed by Michael Raines and documents the band’s first ever tour of China and other parts of Asia. You can watch the trailer for the doc here. The band will also perform live after the film’s screening. Tickets are still available right here.
Filmed during their last international tour, acclaimed indie band The Album Leaf treks across Asia in a final attempt to gain traction in the changing landscape of music distribution. BEYOND THERE features stunning live performances and a rarely seen, intimate glimpse at the anti-rockstar side of a band on the precipice of change.
