Lindi Ortega - "Lovers In Love - feat. Corb Lund" (Indie): Here's a duet made in honkytonk heaven. Lindi Ortega and Corb Lund both have deep roots in authentic country and western, so hearing their two distinctive voices together on this track will be a real treat for their fans.
This acoustic version of “Lovers In Love” featuring Lund was released on Ortega’s Liberty Parkhill Sessions earlier this year. Recorded at the Parkhill Studios in Calgary, the stripped-down, three-song session also includes versions of “Forever Blue” and “The Comeback Kid,” which were part of Ortega’s acclaimed LP Liberty.
The song is a testimony to the magic and mystery of enduring love. The pair trade verses, with Ortega's trademark haunting sound meshing neatly with Lund's ruggedly virile voice. The track is further enhanced by a striking lyric video with a sepia tone evocative of the old west that clearly inspires both Ortega and Lund.
Ortega's work has never quite achieved the commercial success it deserves, but few artists can match the press adulation it has received. Those praising her recent work include TheGuardian, Pitchfork, The New York Times, and Rolling Stone Country.
She has US shows, Nov. 4-17. Check dates here
