American musician and singer-songwriter Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr) has announced the release of a new album called Reason To Live which will be out on May 28th via Joyful Noise Recordings. We already shared “Over You“; “Love Intervene” is a new excerpt. He explains:
“Since this is a lyric video I don’t feel the need to explain the lyrics. I can say it’s an anthem and I’m not sure if I’ve ever really written a real anthem before. I shy away from declarations, life is too complicated. But, it’s hard to argue with the power of love. I wrote this song a few years ago and recorded it a few times. I tried it as solo acoustic song and sang it on a few short tours I did, playing backyards and living rooms in the U.S. It seemed to go over well, or, maybe I just like singing it. I tried it with a band too. I’d like to say that this “Reason To Live” version is the definitive recording of the song but, honestly, I’d like to hear someone else take it to new heights. The sentiment seems almost out of my range sometimes. Believing in love is like that, it can always be bigger but remain so elusive. “
