Adam Zwig, ‘Once a True Love (Reprise)’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Indie-roots singer-songwriter (and psychotherapist!) Adam Zwig is premiering the live music video for his track “Once a True Love (Reprise)” exclusively for readers of The Boot.
“Once a True Love (Reprise)” appears on Zwig’s latest album, Adam Zwig: Live at the Wiltern Theatre; the track recalls Ryan Adams and Tom Petty thanks to its straightforward lyricism and easy harmonies. Recorded live at Los Angeles’ stunning Wiltern Theatre, Zwig's newest project was produced by Grammy-winning engineer David Bianco, who layered sounds from the cheering crowd in within the album. You’ll hear that at the beginning of “Once a True Love (Reprise),” just before Zwig launches into a ridiculously catchy and melodic guitar riff.
Then, the storytelling starts: “With my hands in my pockets and my coat collar high / I will be leaving dear,” sings Zwig in the intro, setting the song’s slightly melancholy (and yet somehow upbeat) tone.
"Once Upon a Time (Reprise)" was inspired by the love that lingers once you’ve ended a relationship, Zwig explains.
“Relationships have something mysterious about them. Sometimes fate intervenes in a way you would never expect. "Once a True Love (Reprise)” is about love that lasts even after a relationship is over,” he tells The Boot. “That night at the Wiltern, we felt really in sync with the audience, and the band gave me shivers with their harmonies.”
