Rebecca Loebe, ‘Forever Young Forever’ Lyric Video [Exclusive Premiere]
“Forever Young Forever,” Loebe tells The Boot, was her initial spark of inspiration for her upcoming fourth full-length studio album, Blink. The song was inspired by a sudden burst of nostalgia, brought on by a tune she heard in the car.
“On my way home from a gig one night, a song that I’d included on a bunch of mixtapes in high school came on the radio, and suddenly I was transported back in time to the summer I was 17,” Loebe recalls. “By the time I got home, I had written “Forever Young Forever,” and the rest of the songs [for Blink] started spilling out from there.”

Virginia born and Georgia raised, Loebe appeared on The Voice back in 2011; her performance of Nirvana’s “Come as You Are” during blind auditions earned her a spot on Adam Levine‘s team (although she was eliminated during the Battle Round), and a Top 10 iTunes single in the U.S., Canada, Europe and South America. In August of 2016, Loebe released a “surprise” EP of acoustic songs, Vittles & Valentines; Blink is set for release on Feb. 3.
Currently, Loebe is touring across the country. Upcoming stops include shows in Texas, Oklahoma and North Carolina, among others, as well as a date at Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Cafe. Blink is available for pre-order on iTunes.
