“Heartache has rarely sounded so haunting.” UNCUT

Canadian singer-songwriter Jerry Leger has released the music video for his latest single, “Out There Like The Rain” off his latest album, ‘Donlands’, released via Latent Recordings. It comes ahead of his 12-date UK tour next month, which kicks off in Lewes on May 15.

Leger’s self-penned, “Out There Like The Rain” marries Dan Mock’s moog synth and Aaron Goldstein’s pedal steel to lay the foundations for the Canadian’s dreamy vocals. Americana Highways said the song was in “John Lennon territory” whilst Americana UK praised the production. The video was produced by Joshua Parrett, with additional footage from Katie Methot and sees a cutout of Leger and various cityscapes overlaid onto an animated backdrop.

Speaking about the new video, Leger said: “Joshua Parrett put together a surrealistic video for “Out There Like The Rain” that captures the song’s mood beautifully. The recording has what I think is my best vocal performance so far.”

On Donlands, Leger teamed up with producer Mark Howard (Lucinda Williams, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Neil Young) whose trademark atmospheric sound adds an entirely new dimension to his approach. Named after the street in Toronto’s east end where it was recorded, in what once was the Donlands Theatre, the album presents Jerry Leger as he’s never been heard before.

The UK tour, which is a part of a European run of dates which sees him visit The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, is a chance for fans to hear the songs of ‘Donlands’ come to life in a live setting.
