Terra Lightfoot Announces New Album “Healing Power”, Shares New Song “Cross Border Lovers”
Canadian singer-songwriter Terra Lightfoot has announced her fifth studio album “Healing Power” will be released on October 13, 2023.
It is her first album in three years since the 2020 album “Consider the Speed”.
The album comprises 12-track, produced by Gus van Go. This marks the third time Terra Lightfoot and Gus van Go have worked together.
Terra Lightfoot said of the album, “There was a sense of freedom, both personally and creatively, that struck me while I was writing this record. Once I got back into the studio with Gus, having already made two records with him, there was an undeniable comfort and workflow that we just fell into. We are super-productive together in the studio. I also seem to get my best vocal takes with Gus behind the board. We built this record pretty quickly together with the band on call whenever we needed them.”
- From the album, she released the first single called “Cross Border Lovers” on August 17, 2023.
The track was written by Terra Lightfoot and produced by Gus van Go. The accompanying music video was co-directed by Lyle Bell and Terra Lightfoot.
“This is a song for all the lovers during the pandemic that might not have been able to be together,” Lightfoot said of the song. “I played a show in Calgary where two separate couples came up to the merch table, one after another, and shared stories of being separated in different countries for months while pandemic restrictions were strict. Both couples used to listen to a specific song of mine to feel connected to each other. Of course, I was touched. And because they came up one after the other, their situations really struck me. I wrote the words 'cross border lovers' on the back of my merch settlement sheet that night. At a friend’s cottage a month later, I sat down to write, looked at those words, and the song and melody fell out so quickly I could barely write it.”
