Listenbee Releases 'Nottamun Town' Video
(MSO) Listenbee has released a new music video for his unique take on the traditional folk song "Nottamun Town." The track has received almost 2 millions plays on Spotify since it was released last October.
We were sent the following details: The song has a rich history... Said to have originated as far back as Medieval England, the folk tale of "Nottamun Town" quickly became a far-reaching oral tradition, spreading overseas and through the Appalachian Mountains over time. Enchanted by the song's mysterious nature as a child, legendary folk singer Jean Ritchie brought the song into prominence in the 1950s.
"When I first heard Jean Ritchie's version of 'Nottamun Town,' I felt like I had stumbled into some kind of cool ass time warp," Listenbee shares. "I could feel the history in it. I wanted to create a song that could exist in the modern world but still have the pulse and feeling of all that history. This song is special to me, and I hope it captures people's imaginations the same way it captured mine." Watch the video here.
