Due to be released on June 23 2021, the album is a musical archive of the last 13 years of Lobo’s life.
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Actor and director Levi Lobo is pleased to announce the upcoming release of his new album ‘Nowadays,’ which is accompanied by a music video for the track ‘Almost Home.’ The album will be available on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify, where it can be pre-ordered, Apple Music, YouTube, Amazon and Pandora.
Lobo, the founder of Era Publishing, wrote the songs over the last decade as a tribute to his late father, Gerald Donald Martinez, a pastor who dedicated his life to helping disadvantaged communities in Albuquerque. Having lived homeless for many years, the songs are a deep reflection of Lobo’s experiences; experiences which he says he needed to process:
“These are songs I wrote when I was younger. I wrote them because I had to; I was processing the loss of my father. My writing looks at fatherlessness and homelessness in society as a whole, as a result of my personal experiences. “
One of the songs on the album, ‘Almost Home,’ includes a video, a documentary cataloging Levi’s notable moments throughout his life. ‘Almost Home’ is the story about returning home to the core elements of what brings him life: his family. Lobo explains that the first words of this song were written when he was 13 and the last words were written when he was 26.
“The song encompasses 13 years of life, death and the coming of age. This song brings me home.”
Lobo believes that every person has the ability to rise up out of poverty and destruction and find their value and calling, and hopes that the album will inspire people to look at large scale issues such as fatherlessness and homelessness.
