Dakota has had a busy winter in the studio recording her second single Por un Minuto, working on tracks for her upcoming self titled debut EP and shooting a new music video for her cover of the First Nations singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie classic hit Until It’s Time For You To Go.
The music video for Until It’s Time For You To Go was shot on location in New Mexico with the main location set at Dennis Hopper’s Historic El Cortez Theatre in Ranchos de Taos. “I instantly identified with the song the very first time I heard it at a private event Buffy performed at during Indian Market in Santa Fe.” Dakota said. According to Sainte-Marie, the song “popped into my head while I was falling in love with someone I knew couldn’t stay with me.”
Until It’s Time For You To Go was originally released in 1965 on Sainte-Marie’s album Many a Mile. The song was a UK Top 20 hit for British group The Four Pennies in 1965, a US Top 10 hit for Elvis Presley in 1971 and a US Hot 100 single for Neil Diamond and Andy Williams. The song has also been covered by Willie Nelson, Cher, Jim Croce, Barbra Streisand, Glen Campbell, Nancy Sinatra, Paul Anka, Roberta Flack, Eddy Arnold, Helen Reddy and Bobby Darin, to name a few.
