David Duchovny Premieres Self-Penned 'Let It Rain (Acoustic)': Exclusive



Fans know actor-director David Duchovny best for portraying not one but two classic TV characters -- Fox Mulder on The X-Files and Hank Moody on Californication. Soon, we'll see him as the lead in the Charles Manson-themed mini-series Aquarius, premiering May 28.

But now, it's time to let David Duchovny the singer-songwriter into your life.

Duchovny's debut album Hell or Highwater, an album of 12 songs written by the man himself, drops May 12. And today, Billboard is exclusively premiering the gently impassioned "Let It Rain (Acoustic)," the first song on Hell or Highwater.

David Duchovny on His Folksy Debut Album: 'I'm Not Going to Win American Idol, But I Have Something to Say'

"'Let It Rain' is about, to me, the way we look at things that are considered hard or bad or difficult -- the grey area where there seems to be no clear answer -- a bad storm, an earthquake -- and these are the things that end up giving us the most clarity and wisdom and even, in the end, pleasure," Duchovny says. "So -- let it rain.Ē

Listen to the exclusive premiere below and check out the album's tracklist below the song.

Let It Rain- song by David Duchovny

Lyrics:

If you knew me you would stay
If you knew me you would walk away
We donít get black and white
Ours is only shadowed light
This is how it goes
One years golden and the next one blows
It could be I am wrong
Mistaking breaking dusk for dawn
You see Iíve heard of this before
My glass ceiling could be your ground floor
If I knew better I would stay
If I knew better I would walk away
Like the earth that splits and moves
Woman by her fault known
I donít see crack and seals
Only see how the light gets in
The grey skyís it threatens rain above
As our love it threatens pain, my love
You canít hurt the one you already left behind
Walk it back baby take another breath rewind
And let it rain.
And let it rain
There is nothing you could do
To make me turn my back on you
There is nothing you could say
Iíve imagined worse anyway
The waves break on the shore
The shore it only waits for more
Like the earth that splits in moves
A woman by her faults known
I donít see cracks and seals
Only see how the light gets it
The grey sky it threaten rain above
As our love I threatens pain, my love
You canít hurt the one youíve already left behind
Walk it back baby take another breath rewind
And let it rain
Let it rain
Let it rain

THE BALCONY REVIEW - DAVID DUCHOVNY / LET IT RAIN - 4.1/10



The Balcony Review - David Duchovny / Let It Rain - 4.1/10

In The Balcony Review, our world producers review the latest music releases.

David Duchovny's debut album Hell or Highwater is out May 12. And yesterday, Billboard exclusively premiered "Let It Rain (Acoustic)," the first song on Hell or Highwater.

Our producers gave it a listen...

"Is there nothing Mulder can't do?He also released a book earlier this year named 'Holy Cow' (about a cow, pig & turkey breaking away from farm-life). I think fair play to him. I would be interested in hearing more. If he's also playing the piano...that's seriously impressive!!" - Karen Maloney / BalconyTV Galway

"3 people, including the barman, in a cocktail bar, on a classy cruise ship, 3.30am. A woman finally convinces her drunk partner to climb onto the stage and play the song he wrote for her on the ships Steinway. When he sings the line "..this is how it goes, one year golden, the next one blows.." the barman calls time." - Matt Calder / BalconyTV Exeter

"Finally, Mulder is back. I really missed him and it seems 2015 it will be the Duchovny year! The single, "Let it Rain" is a mysterious, dark lyric with a great piano tune. I'm a suspect due to my appreciation for these kind of musical arrangements but on a overall review I think it's a pretty good song. Even if David's voice lacks the projection that the song deserves, the interpretation of the great actor that he is offers a very positive delivery." - Miguel Teixeira / BalconyTV Lisboa

"There's a time for big words, and there's a time to call things by their name. I feel emotion coming from the piano melody, but there is only one musician that can afford to recite their poetry, and that's Leonard Cohen. This is far from that." - Marie Zhorova / BalconyTV Chamonix

"In my opinion the music and David's voice don't go hand in hand.... I did enjoy the music though." - Tiah Randall / BalconyTV Sydney
