Today, the Video Clip of The Week is excited to feature Juno Award-winning Canadian artist David Myles’ new video for his single, “Real Love” — which is the title track from Myles’ upcoming 10th studio release! Of the 13-track record, Myles confesses, “It’s a record I’ve always wanted to make . . . an upbeat, danceable, fun record that harkens back to the early days of rock ‘n roll.” Written entirely by Myles and produced by Daniel Ledwell, Real Love is a departure from the songer’s previous record in that it is fully electric. Real Love also features members of his touring trio — Kyle Cunjak on bass and Allan Jeffries on guitar, plus Joshua Van Tassel on drums and additional vocals by Mahalia and Reeny Smith. Exciting!
Drawing from American roots music, Real Love mixes full-bodied arrangements and dance rhythms with classic rock ‘n’ roll structures. It follows 2015’s So Far, which All Music described as “a smooth, sophisticated collection of tracks,” and about which No Depression noted, “[Myles’] low-key, unassuming style ingratiates him from the first notes forward.”
David Myles’ sound traverses musical time periods and genres, crisscrossing folk, roots, pop, jazz and country. His embrace of varied styles and tastes has resulted in numerous collaborations — most recently, with hip hop star Classified, Grammy Award-winner Alex Cuba and Quebec’s Jean Francois Brault. Real Love is due out on January 26th, 2018 via Little Tiny Records. Enjoy!
