Carole King Releases Song She Wrote With Hal David In Last Century On iTunes

Tonight and tomorrow night, Carole King will be honored with the Gershwin Prize For Songwriting at the Library of Congress and the White House, but she has also been seeking out an old tape of a song that she wrote with Hal David in 1999. Her people found the cassette (!) and it was released today as King’s new single on iTunes.

I Believe in Loving You has been produced by Carole’s daughter, Louise Goffin. King wrote about the song on her website:

Last year, after I learned that Hal David had passed away, I remembered that he and I had written together in 1999. So I asked my team if they could find those cassettes.

They did.

After listening to the rough draft demo of I Believe In Loving You, I knew I had to record it properly, if only for his family. But then [Grammy-nominated producer] Louise Goffin recorded such a wonderful track that I thought a lot more people beyond Hal’s family might want to hear it.

To no one’s surprise but my own, I asked my team, “Can we release “I Believe In Loving You” as a single?”

We could.

I hope you like it.

The single is available now on iTunes.
