Luke Elliot and his cinematic, elegant songwriting, and compelling live performances have been holding audiences spellbound since his debut album in 2016. He is now set to release his third album ”Let ’Em All Talk” on May 19th via Icons Creating Evil Art. The title track will be available on March 10th HERE. You can listen to the track HERE. He has also just confirmed an appearance at the Black Deer Festival in June.
A New Jersey native now based in Oslo Norway, Elliot’s passion for performing and connection with his fans has taken him to sold out venues all over the world. His previous album The Big Wind (2020) – a boldly textured and instantly immersive album with a film noir-ish touch -prompted Mojo to call him “…a master of accessible, twisted, gothic Americana” while Rolling Stone France chose it as their album of the month.
Elliot says about the new song ” I’m so relieved to finally get this record going with the first single, “Let ‘Em All Talk.” This song started off with me and Frode (Jacobsen) sitting in his basement. He had some ideas for basic chords and I just started singing along to the melody naturally like some sort of chanteur. I’m not sure where it came from, but the first line just came out this way, with different words in the beginning. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about, so it took me a little while to get the imagery together. I finished it while in Pasadena with haunting background vocals by Peter Kvint. Who can even come up with stuff like that anymore?”
