Jorn Lande, a Solo Rock Artist from Norway has premiered a new music video for one of there tracks from his latest album "Heavy Rock Radio II Executing The Classics" which was released in January. The song is a cover from Don Henley titled "New York Minute".
Here is what Jorn Lande had to say about the new music video release and why he chose this specific track: "After releasing ‘Heavy Rock Radio II’ in late January, just before the coronavirus pandemic hit the world, a video for the song 'New York Minute' was something I very much wanted to do. It is one of those epic songs that is relevant regardless of the times and even though it reflects on NYC and the specific story penned by Don Henley, it's a timeless classic that is lyrically identifiable to people everywhere. It reflects everything from everyday life and love, to terror, despair and personal crisis, and could easily include the current pandemic situation...an imprint of our time described with simple words that brings a visual to our minds. If there was ever a time capsule to be buried leaving some music for future generations to find, what better song to include, lyrically, than 'New York Minute’?”
The vocalist went on to talk about how amazed he's been at the reaction of artists from all over the world: “it has been fantastic to see many fellow musicians performing from home, giving support and sharing personal experiences in these difficult times of quarantine and illness. A heartwarming massive global movement to support all the hard working health care workers who are at the front line battling against Covid-19, the true heroes in these challenging times! Regardless of who we are and what we do, we are all affected by the situation in various ways, and I feel that despite the lockdown and physical distance of staying home, it still brings us all closer together. Many of my fans have been asking for a Jorn performance from home, and I hope releasing this video will be a good alternative to a living room show. I have been spending time with my good and very competent friends at Showfabrikken (The Show Factory), happy to be able to make this video happen in the middle of this situation, taking all necessary precautions to keep safe and healthy while working.”
The Music Video and song 'New York Minute' represents "a globally relevant message" that's "easily identifiable for people all over the world", he then said that he hopes "it can inspire through hard times".
He noted at the end that "everything can change... in a New York Minute" and what we take from that message is that anything that we have done, are going to do or think will happen, can change at any moment in time and it sometimes, it can be out of our control.
