Video: Roseanne Reid “Call It Love”

Rosanne Reid conjures Memphis in the joyous video for ‘Call It Love’.  Filmed in a recording studio Reid stands alone at the mic and delivers the type of southern groove that Justin Townes Earle slipped easily into.  But there is no addiction-addled melancholia here, the joys of new parenthood seep into every corner and crevice of the track.  This is the first single from her sophomore album ‘Lawside’.   Working close to home with producer-engineer Dave Macfarlane the album was recorded during the tail end of the Covid lockdown era.

On writing the track Reid reflects, ’Call It Love’ was the natural choice as the lead track,” she says, “but I’d love to put ‘Mona Lisa’ out as a single. It’s got that Celtic singalong feel to it, with the fiddle and accordion and bodhrán drum, instead of a full drum kit. I started writing it about four years ago, and I went months without finishing it. I really liked the first verse and I said to my wife that I wanted to get it done, so we set aside a day to finish it. So, it’s co-written with my wife, which is totally unique in itself.”
