Laidback Luke Releases ‘Rolling Stone’, A Personal Message To His Children

The famous song ‘Papa Was A Rolling Stone’ by The Temptations has been an evergreen for decades and narrates the story of a rock and roll father from the child’s perspective. Today, Laidback Luke has released his own rendition with the help of David Gonçalves.

At the same time that Luke was a new father, his career blew up – meaning he was touring internationally and not home often.

Needless to say that this was no easy task when also raising two young kids at the time. Luke has been very public with how he used to struggle with balancing his work and family obligations. It has taken Luke years to be able to get to a better place whilst also considering his own personal well being.

The track is very personal to Luke, it allows him to reflect on where he came from and recognize the mistakes he’s made, knowing he is now in a better place with all his children.

“I’ve always had a connection with this legendary vocal. The Rolling Stone part I linked to always being on the go. For over a decade, my carry-on luggage has been my home away from home. But a lifetime of touring and performing, what toll does that take on your family and loved ones? I’ve always tried my best to combine both and nowadays I am getting better at succeeding at it. This song is dedicated to my kids. Papa loves you! ❤”
