Songs We Love is a series and a podcast that looks at the stories behind some of the songs we're playing on our new music discovery stream, WUNC Music.

On this episode, Eric Hodge talks with the Canadian singer/songwriter Leif Vollebekk about his song 'Elegy' from the album Twin Solitude.

Vollebekk explains his editing process. He says that the four minute 'Elegy' was originally a 15 or 2o minute jam until the right drum beat came to him.

"I was like, this is the beat, it's specifically this tempo and it feels like this."
