Le Ren Shares New Single “May Hard Times Pass Us By”

Le Ren today shared “May Hard Times Pass Us By,” the final single off her debut album Leftovers out October 15th via Secretly Canadian. “This song is really close to my heart. It was written for someone as we worked through a turbulent time in our relationship,” explains the Montreal-based artist (née Lauren Spear). Leftovers was produced by Chris Cohen and featuring contributions from Buck Meek and Tenci, among others.

“May Hard Times Pass Us By” follows previous singles “Dyan” and “I Already Love You.” “The final instalment of the Leftovers video tripartite, ‘May Hard Times Pass Us By’ begins where the ‘I Already Love You’ video ends,” explains Vanderkruyk. “Lauren’s mother drops her off at an undisclosed location and drives away. The story continues in the rehearsal and disrobing of a sad jester character, played by Le Ren as the actor. We shot the video at Tir-na-nOg Theatre School on Bowen island / Nex̱wlélex̱m, where Lauren grew up performing.”
