Canadian country artist, Laurie LeBlanc is back with a brand new single, “I’ve Never Known” from his latest full-length offering, When It’s Right, It’s Right.
In this track, the East Coast cowboy crooner stares love straight in the eyes on this track, humbly confessing that this — this feeling — this is beyond all comprehension.
A delicately strung together single, it gets right to the heart of the matter from the first chord. Unabashedly slow and melodic, “I’ve Never Known” is a transpiring tale of finally finding the one.
The song is rooted in traditional country; plucking guitar, just the right twinge of twang, rushing percussion, and the truth. LeBlanc churns out beautiful melodic harmonies, stitching together the magic of falling in love and the desire to lean into it fully. Country fans are served up a cocktail of Brad Paisley bourbon, poured over Blake Shelton on the rocks, mixed in a Kenny Chesney tumbler, and garnished with 90’s-slow-song vibes these fans made famous. You’ll find yourself whisked away in the enchantment, searching for a partner to sweep across a dance floor made of stars.
Laurie’s previous efforts with his group, Zarico, produced two full-length French albums, lending him the courage to entertain the possibility of a solo career, and what ultimately became When It’s Right, It’s Right.
With a gentle push from his wife and manager Jeannette, LeBlanc felt confident in pursuing an album in English.
“I needed to step out of my comfort zone, and it turned out to be a truly gratifying experience,” he expresses. “I’ll always love singing in French, and cherish the support I get from my francophone audience, but hearing one of my songs on the radio alongside the Canadian and American country artists I admire gives me so much joy.
“The album has a little bit of everything I like — up-tempo fun stuff, happy love stories, and even some country rock in there too,” LeBlanc explains. “It was hard to choose the final ten cuts for the record, but at the end of the day, I think it turned out just right.”
