‘Until It’s Gone’ by Marcus Paquin | New Album, ‘Our Love’
Exclusive video premiere of ‘Until It’s Gone’ by Marcus Paquin, taken from the latest album, ‘Our Love,’ out now via Birthday Cake Records.
Notable songwriter and musician Marcus Paquin is perhaps best known for his work on albums by iconic artists such as The National, Local Natives, The Weather Station, Julia Jacklin, Begonia, and Sarah Harmer.
Today, Marcus shares his debut solo effort, an album entitled ‘Our Love’ (out now via Birthday Cake Records). The album dives into a difficult transition in his life – the separation from his partner of 18 years and finding self-love, new love and acceptance of his new path in life. It was written, arranged, played, produced, and mixed by Marcus with drumming from friend and former bandmate Liam O’Neill of the band Suuns. It combines Marcus’ raw and intimate songwriting with his veteran production chops, blending traditional indie rock sounds with lush layers of electronics and synths.
To celebrate the release, today, Marcus also shares the record’s focus track, ‘Until It’s Gone.’
Speaking on the track, Marcus continued:
“‘Until it’s Gone’ is a song about being conscious and recognizing that every moment is precious and filled with endless beauty.
We are surrounded by a love that connects us all, but often we dwell on the past and the future while overlooking what is most important; the present.
We must show up for ourselves NOW.
We must be present for the people in our lives NOW.
We must open our hearts and love NOW.
We must not wait until it’s gone.”
