Barney Bentall shares video for “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go”

Barney Bentall shares a new single, “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” from Cosmic Dreamer album

Multi-Platinum selling and JUNO Award winner Barney Bentall has unveiled a video for his newest single, “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.” The single is from his newly released album, Cosmic Dreamer.

In this single, Bentall collaborates with long-time friend Valentino Trapani — a pal he met just over a decade ago “on a beautiful road in Tuscany,” he recalls.

“We were both on bikes, and Valentino was helping guide the group we were with,” Bentall continues. “He asked what I did, and I told him I was a musician; he asked who I liked and, when Leonard Cohen’s name was mentioned, we both spontaneously sang ‘Famous Blue Raincoat’ from start to finish! 

“I was trying to catch my breath a little more than Valentino… But it was a wonderful moment.” 

Commissioning Trapani’s collaboration on “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” for both the song and the video didn’t give Bentall any cause for pause, he shares.

“We have sung together over the years, but it’s that first time that really sticks with me. When I was recording Cosmic Dreamer, I was looking for one more track and, when I reached out to Valentino about it, he was all in.”

With Trapani recording his parts of the song in Siena, and Bentall completing his on the West Coast of Canada, the video was shot on iPhones throughout the ranching back-acres of B.C. and rolling vineyards of Tuscany.

“A beautiful thing,” Bentall adds of the cross-continental collaboration process.

The song is one of just three on the LP to feature special guests, and one of two covers on the otherwise all-original release; Ruth Moody and Adrian Dolan also join Bentall alongside Trapani; Cosmic Dreamer also includes a rendition of Gordon Lightfoot’s “Shadows.”
