Singer-songwriter Leila is known for her emotive warm vocals and candid songs. Her latest release entitled “Go On Young Soul” is a departure sonically from her last 70’s inspired folk tune “By You Now”. The new track is a slowed down poignant affair with delicate piano and layered harmonies. The accompanying visuals for “Go On Young Soul” follows Leila as she goes about her day in modern time dealing with the pandemic, civil unrest and upcoming election. The video simultaneously shows the struggles we as Americans are facing but also gives us hope for a new future. Leila succeeds in showing the power of voting and making our voices heard.
“Go On Young Soul” is off of Leila’s upcoming album Glass Highways produced by Tim Carr, set for release October 28th. The ten-track release is essentially a break up album exploring stages of romantic loss.
What Leila does best is make us all feel something, something deep down that rarely emerges. Watch the new video for “Go On Young Soul” and make your voice heard.
