Stu Larsen Shares Cheerful Video About Misfits & Vagabonds; North American Tour Continues
August 10, 2017 BY Nettwerk
Stu Larsen shares the official music video for “Chicago Song” the lead single from his latest album Resolute (out now via Nettwerk Records). Pulled from the song’s lyrics “I’ve been waiting for a partner in crime, to split every dollar and share every dime,” the playful video is chock full of colorful misfits and vagabonds. Watch The Official Music Video For “Chicago Song” above.
The 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 named 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.
