Eli Lev has masterfully built strong human connections over the years by captivating audiences with his authentic, infectious melodies and uplifting lyrics. “That Universal Song,” recorded over a two-year span in Manassas, Virginia with acclaimed producer Austin Bello, continues the trend by merging modern production techniques with conventional instrumentation to achieve a more contemporary take on traditional folk music.
Finding its groove from the onset, “That Universal Song” quickly and efficiently finds its way to the resounding chorus, “Na na na na na na,” which inevitably transforms listeners into active participants. The song expertly demonstrates how music is capable of “bringing people together and dismantling the barriers that divide us.”
Released in September 2023, the track is a snapshot that captures Lev’s present moment as a musician: “Feeling a profound sense of unity and purpose, he aims to capture the universal desires of humanity – safety, respect for values, and a brighter future for generations to come.”
“That Universal Song” is undoubtedly a track that will bring a smile to your face and put a dance into your step. It is the first track off his highly anticipated EP, Present Journey, contributing to his ambitious music project Three Worlds.
