Love And Death julkaisi musiikkivideon DJ Snaken ja Justin Bieberin ”Let Me Love You” -kappaleen coverista

Yhdysvaltalaisesta nu metal -yhtye Kornista tunnetun kitaristi Brian ”Head” Welchin luotsaama metalliyhtye  julkaisi musiikkivideon ”Let Me Love You” -coveristaan, jolla vierailee Flyleafin entinen laulaja Lacey Sturm. Alkuperäinen kappale ilmestyi vuonna 2014 DJ Snaken ja Justin Bieberin yhteistyön tuloksena.

Welch kertoi, että ”Let Me Love You” -kappale on yksi hänen suosikeistaan coveroitavista biiseistä. Hän nauttii siitä, kun voi tehdä pop-kappaleesta todella raskaan version. Lisäksi kolmen laulajan yhdistäminen toi siihen omaperäisyyttä, ja Welchin mielestä hänen, kitaristi J.R. Bareisin sekä Sturmin äänet sekoittuvat hyvin yhteen. Hän pyysi Lacey Sturmin mukaan coveriin tietämättä, että tämä oli juuri menettänyt rakkaan ja samaistui vahvasti kappaleen sanomaan.

“‘LMLY‘ has been one of my favorite tracks to cover. It’s so enjoyable to me making a pop song super heavy. Having three vocalists perform on the track was unique as well and I love the way mine, Lacey and JR [Bareis]’s voices blend together. When I asked Lacey to do the song with us I had no idea what the lyrics would mean to her at that particular time. After discovering what she was going through, my main hope with the song was that Lacey would find healing, and that healing might extend to anyone struggling in life who heard the track.

The ‘never give up’ message that directors Sebastien Paquet and Alison Roberto worked hard to convey in the music video profoundly mirrored some of the conversations Lacey and I were having behind the scenes, without either director having prior knowledge of the conversations, so we were very blown away by that and we’re so proud of what we achieved here with this song and video. Art is so much more powerful than we think.”

Lacey Sturm kommentoi yhteistyötä:

“Working with on ‘Let Me Love You‘ was sort of a supernatural experience. I was mourning the loss of a loved one when I recorded the song. Mourning is a multifaceted process and sort of comes in waves. They asked me to do the song at a very dark moment in that process. When I went to sing in the studio the lyrics were everything I wanted to sing and scream in response to this death; which felt like such a theft.”
