NOAH GUNDERSEN Releases new single ‘Lover’ with music video
The title track of his forthcoming album, out August 23 via Cooking Vinyl
UK & European Tour in January 2020 announced
Acclaimed musician Noah Gundersen has released a sensual video for his new single ‘Lover,’ the title track from his fourth album, which arrives August 23 via Cooking Vinyl; pre-orders are available now HERE.
For Gundersen, the song is deeply personal. “I’ve never really cried to my own songs like I have with this one. Somehow I’m able to see myself so clearly in it. Andy [Park, collaborator] and I wrote and recorded most of it in one night, early on in the process of making the record. The second verse just came out as an ad-lib and we never changed it. Sometimes you tell yourself something over and over, just hoping that it will eventually come true, trying to fill an unspeakable void.”
Widely hailed as a powerful and compelling live performer, Gundersen will herald ‘Lover’ with a North American headline tour this autumn and he’s just announced a headline tour of the UK and Europe in January 2020.

The Seattle-based Gundersen recently released the emotionally charged song and video, ‘Robin Williams,’ which also features on ‘Lover’, and Consequence Of Sound wrote “might make you cry, too. Evoking the memory of the beloved comedian, Gundersen wrestles with the finality of life.”
Recorded over two years at Seattle’s The Crumb studio with longtime collaborator, producer/engineer Andy D. Park (Death Cab For Cutie, K. Flay, Pedro The Lion), ‘Lover’ sees Gundersen continuing to veer towards an increasingly intimate and intense creative approach, wedding intricate beats and warm, natural instrumentation to a series of stark, almost dreamlike, new songs. Rich with patience and grace, songs like ‘Older’ and ‘Out of Time’ reveal a remarkably gifted songwriter-artist in the midst of confrontation with life’s toughest truths, somehow emerging with even greater self-awareness and understanding.
“It’s about love, it’s about failure, it’s about drugs, it’s about sex, it’s about age, it’s about regret, it’s about itself (very meta, I know) and it’s about finding peace,” says Gundersen of the album. “I think it’s the most I’ve ever put of myself into something. It’s been cathartic. I’ve cried a lot.”
