Laurie LeBlanc longs for Another Night Like This in his latest single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“Imagine a warm summer night, the kind when fireworks and butterflies are ever so present, and you just don’t want it to end,” the New Brunswick country singer-songwriter says. “It may be your first love, or it may be ‘the one’ … And if we’re lucky, it happens to us once in our lifetime.”
Another Night Like This is the latest highlight from LeBlanc’s most recent full-length offering When It’s Right It’s Right. Highlighting his enveloping, all-encompassing east coast Acadian sounds, the album features 10 original songs, each co-written with some of Nashville’s top songsmiths. It was produced by Canadian Country Music Award winner Jason Barry and features members of Dean Brody’s touring band.
Inspired to push his desire to write in English — and with a loving nudge from his wife and manager Jeannette, with whom he also co-created the single All In — When It’s Right It’s Right is LeBlanc’s second English release. “She wanted me to record an English album for a while,” says the singer, whose previous albums include Couleurs (2018), 20 (2015), Noël de la Pitoune (2014), Noir et Blanc (2012), La Pitoune (2010) and Influences (2013).
“I needed to step out of my comfort zone, and it turned out to be a truly gratifying experience,” he says. “I loved this song from the first moment I heard it. The writer’s description of a magical night between two lovers, blended with a sexy, laid-back energy? I knew right away it would be a cut on the album. I wanted this album to have a diverse sound, but it’s also important to me to make people happy through my music. If I can connect with a song, then hopefully other people will too.
“When It’s Right It’s Right has a little bit of everything I like. There’s up-tempo, fun stuff, happy love stories, and even some country rock in there, too. It was hard to choose the final cuts for the record, but at the end of the day I think it turned out just right.”
