Alex Izenberg delivers new single 'Ivory'

With his eagerly-awaited new album landing in the coming weeks, Alex Izenberg has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Ivory' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, featuring Sir Paul McCartney #4, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Sorrows Blue Tapestry' and 'Egyptian Cadillac' in previewing his new LP 'I'm Not Here', which is out on the 20th May via Domino.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “I don’t know if it’s as much of a story as me trying to tell a story, because I don’t consider myself to be a storyteller like Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen, but I guess it was me kind of going for that. It could be interpreted in different ways, depending on what your mood is, but I think it kind of can be interpreted as a fancy couple going out and how they’re not really in love but they’re still together. And then “real love will stone you” at the end of the chorus can be interpreted as them finding out they’re not in love. I was kind of going for a “Best of My Love” Eagles kind of vibe. That song I think is about the singer just being hopelessly in love with somebody and just telling her she gets the best of his love. Lyrically it’s not quite the same but the vibe I was going for.”
