New Video Premiere: Stu Larsen – Chicago Song

Following the release of his wonderful album Resolute earlier this year, Stu Larsen has released his latest single Chicago Song – and we’re delighted to bring you the video premiere for the track’s brilliant accompanying visuals

Take a look below…

Chicago Song details a different kind of love for Larsen that happened in the city. The song is about a love affair with a 1973 Martin D-35 guitar he purchased a few years back. “She was beautiful. While touring with Nashville’s Adam Burrows, we spent an entire afternoon checking out guitars at Chicago Music Exchange.” Larsen adds, “I started to write the song in the store before I bought the guitar! I’ve never been able to find names that felt right for my guitars. Eventually, I decided to name them after the cities they were purchased in, therefore, she will be known forevermore as ‘Chicago.’” He also has guitars called Hamburg, St. Paul and Melbourne

Larsen recorded Resolute with impromptu voice memos on his phone, architecting a primitive framework for the songs. As Larsen combed through hundreds of files, he tucked himself away in different locations to write the demos – a cottage in Scotland, an apartment in Spain and an army bunker in Australia. Long-time friend, producer and songwriter Luke Thompson eventually joined him at Mike Rosenberg’s (aka Passenger) studio in Brighton to finish up the demos

And you can check out Larsen’s songs live, at one of his many upcoming shows…
