Soul crooner Jonas releases his video to “Two Times Love Is One”. I love the simple instrumentation and mellow, old-soul vibe on this joint. Jonas speaks on filming the video:
This video was filmed and edited in only 1 day by my friend Waqas Ali from Outlandish. Armed with his Olympus Pen E PL1 we went out to various locations in Copenhagen and shot this very spontanious music video. We started early morning in Christiania and ended up in a small bohemian type cafe called Tjilipop in the evening, where I performed the song at an open mic session.
The track is co-written by late singer/songwriter Lynden David Hall. Jonas also speaks about his experience in the studio with Lyden:
This is what came of my first co-write session with the late Lynden David Hall. I got to know Lynden because we had the same manager at the time, and I had been a fan of his ever since “Sexy Cinderella” came out. He was an amazing singer, songwriter, producer and musician, but more importantly the sweetest and most humble guy you could ever meet. Being in the studio working with him was fascinating and taught me a lot. Those who knew Lynden knew that he was one of a kind, and his legacy will live on through his music. He played me about 3 albums worth of more or less finished material, which still hasn’t come out. I think the world needs to hear it, and I hope that it will be released some day, somehow.
I dedicate this to Nikkie Hall, ’cause I know that’s who Lynden had in mind when we wrote the song – “When all is said and done, you’re my perfect company”
