Hands of Time from country rock’s Route 33 featuring Aussie rock legend, Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus), is the third single lifted from Route 33’s upcoming album, Coro Drive, due for release on August 9 and available to pre-order now.
With the official music video produced and directed by Duncan Toombs of The Filmery, the touching Hands of Time was shot on the beach and features both the duo and McLeod, in a beautiful duet, solo and song which explores a sadly growing issue in modern society, that of suicide.
Based on a real situation involving close friends of the band, the track delves into the effect that the suicide had on a those left behind…in this case, the remaining partner…the self-blame, the unanswered questions, and the total inability to continue life with their opposite missing and never to return.
While a ballad, the new single sits on the rockier side of the country spectrum, with the vulnerability in McLeod’s voice capturing the hurt of a person struggling to live a normal life, reminiscing on young love, leading up to the time of the event. The song unravels through the aftermath of suicide and the lasting impact it has.
