“Leave Tonight” oozes Roy Orbison’s majestic sense of melancholy replete with dreamy harmony vocals. Speaking on the track David says, “Leave Tonight” is about the power of intimacy. The energy between two people. And how that energy can be so powerful the rest of the world just disappears. It’s about wanting that moment to last forever, knowing that it can’t. The world will eventually creep in again but in that moment it doesn’t stand a chance."
Within David’s vast catalogue, he’s reverentially explored jazz, blues, pop, holiday music, French pop, rockabilly, country, folk, gospel, and even hip-hop. The through line across all has been his strong song craft—no matter what genre, David has never sacrificed substance for style. Leave Tonight is no exception.
