Jacob Bellens / One Of A Kind
Leading up to his fourth solo album "Trail Of Intuition", "One Of A Kind" is the second single and video taken from the album.
Jacob Bellens wrote the song before the release of his first solo album but he never recorded it. Many years later he played it live at a concert when Kasper Bjørke happened to be in the audience. He urged Bellens to finally record the song. “But I thought it needed a different production so I did what I sometimes do and wrote a ‚sibling‘ song, an attempt to make a different version of the same song”, Bellens says.
That’s how “Untouchable” came to life, the single released off the previous album Polyester Skin, that became a bit of a hit. So “One Of A Kind” was basically the template for “Untouchable” and indeed you can hear the relation between the two songs, both breathing a similar darkish but groovy atmosphere.
In “One Of A Kind” sluggish piano tones create a jazzy feel while the strings (Ida Marie Arendt and Kirstine Elise Pedersen) add a bit of drama and a trumpet (Mikkel Grevsen) even a festive moment.
