Today, the talented Canadian singer-songwriters Donovan Woods and one of our 2019 Artists to Watch, Tenille Townes released the animated acoustic video for their collaboration “I Ain’t Ever Loved No One.”
“I Ain’t Ever Loved No One” is off of Woods’ most recent album The Other Way and which was produced by Todd Lombardo who has notably worked with Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift, and Niall Horan. Rolling Stone praised Woods saying, “He’s got a knack for slice-of-life storytelling that blends heartache and hooks.” Together with Townes, their voices tell a remarkable story of feeling a love they’ve never felt before.
In the video, a brown backdrop sets the stage for pink flower petals that fall gently onto a hand and sets the tone for the ballad that undoubtedly hits your heart. The fallen rose petals landing on a hand and blooming into another flower is a beautiful metaphor of a love that evolves and prospers. Their raw, crisp voices blend together flawlessly for the chorus as they sing deep, honest lyrics, “And you set the bar for this stubborn heart /And when you met my family, everybody knew that you had me wrapped/I ain’t ever loved no one like that /And when I said I loved ya, I didn’t care if you said it back/I ain’t ever loved no one like that.” As the song nears the end, a silhouette of a man and a woman come together with flower petals continuing to fall as Woods and Townes sing “And maybe I’ll love again, then again, maybe I won’t / Maybe you feel the same, maybe you don’t / How would I know?” Their incredible voices on this duet will make every hopeless romantic’s heart melt.
Woods will be joining Ruston Kelly on his Brightly Burst tour this fall and is making a stop here in New York City on October 24th at The Bowery Ballroom. Townes will be performing at CMA Fest next week at the Chevy Breakout Stage, and is continuing her summer run on Dierks Bentley’s “Burning Man Tour.”
