Tempest Live For Today
Tempest - "Let's Live For Today"
(from the upcomming album "Another Dawn")
Recorded in 2009
When a band covers a classic song, they’d better make damn sure to do it justice. Tempest’s gripping remake of The Grass Roots’ 1960’s classic anthem, “Let’s Live For Today”, does just that while urging us to make a difference in the here and now.
Tempest’s rousing rendition of “Let’s Live For Today” couldn’t have come at a better time. Amid global and domestic concerns, “Let’s Live For Today” is extraordinary music for extraordinary times. Vocalist Lief Sorbye’s evocative, slightly accented (he’s from Norway) delivery recalls perfectly all the mixed emotions and complexities of the original while capturing the uncertainty and joys of our modern and turbulent world.
Over many decades, “Let’s Live For Today” has meant so much to so many people, in peacetime and war, and the urgency in Tempest’s version courses with meaning while leaving us with a life-affirming message.
Produced by multi-instrumentalist/studio stalwart Robert Berry, “Let’s Live For Today” – yet another timeless musical entry in Tempest’s extensive catalog -- fuses Celtic, hard rock and roots influences. The track is a beautiful mix of flute, mandolin, violin, slamming drums, acoustic and electric guitars. These elements have always been the basis of Tempest’s sound.
Tempest is a band with members from 5 different countries, more than 20 years on the road, and the desire to bring their musical tradition to as many people as possible. Tempest is a band with something meaningful to say and the ability to say it while still being very entertaining.
“Let’s Live For Today” is a track that deserves your full attention.
