Finnish long run musician and songwriter J.T. LEHTONEN has unleashed the first video for the song “Seeking”, taking from his debut album “Land of Dust” (released April 7th). The video was partially created by authentic clips from the recording sessions. Watch it below.
Comments J.T. Lehtonen:
“I was honoured to have a great drummer Gas Lipstick (ex-HIM) to play a few songs to my album “Land Of Dust”. I made some video about the sessions. At first place those videos were meant to be only for me, but as they looked so good, I decided to shoot rest of the instruments too and make a music video. I chose “Seeking” for a first target to finish, because I think it is one of the best songs on the album. There are a couple more of songs with same shooting angles coming in near future and also two more artistic videos coming some day, but they will be made by professional video artists. Hopefully you like our first video!!”
The story of the album “Land of Dust” began when J.T. Lehtonen built his own rehersal room and recording studio to the downtairs of His garage.
Material started to form from riffs, ideas and unrecorded songs. Things became to get their form first so that J.T. Lehtonen played all the instruments himself using midi-drums. The tracks started to form but the midi-drums was something that needed to be changed. So J.T. asked Miika “Gas Lipstick” Karppinen (ex HIM) to play the drums for four tracks. After the proper groove drumtracks recorded the idea about the full album started to became clear. Then J.T started to proceed with the re-recordin more guitars etc. On that time “Kaasu” was busy on recording the HIM -album “Tears on Tape” so J.T. got another drummer to play some of the easier songs. By the time Kaasu came back to record drums for three more songs. Then J.T. engineered the album sound with help from Risto Niska.
