Jonathan Wilson shares “Loving You” video featuring Laraaji

Jonathan Wilson has shared a new video for “Loving You,” off the upcoming album Rare Birds, out March 2 on Bella Union. The acclaimed artist’s third solo release features contributions from a versatile roster of high profile cohorts, including the legendary Laraaji, featured on today’s debut. Watch the video for “Loving You”  below…

Jonathan says of the video, “One day, one of my musical heros Laraaji came into my studio to just experiment and record some music. I had the ditty ‘Loving You’ lying around, (it was a song I wrote from a feeling or inflection of a word I heard John Lennon emote in one of his songs) and I then put down a simple little drum machine beat along with the piano and vocal that you hear now. Laraaji then beautifully chanted over the song, one take … then he played his cosmic zither, undulated gracefully with his ipad, and truly shaped the scope of the track. I then added a specific drum/cymbal treatment used throughout Rare Birds, my funky Crumar bass, Lana Del Rey, a few other things and boom that was the genesis of the new album Rare Birds, that song set the tone.”

Rare Birds will be released 2nd March via Bella Union.
