He Don't Live Here No More

Album: How To Become a Clairvoyant (2011)
  • This is the lead single from How To Become a Clairvoyant, the fifth solo album from singer-songwriter and former Band guitarist Robbie Robertson. Inspiration struck the Canadian in a writing session with his friend Eric Clapton, which yielded three songs and spurred Robertson to write on his own. The result was the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's first release since 1998's Contact From The Underworld of Redboy.
  • Lyrically much of How To Become a Clairvoyant is focused on remembrances, including The Band years. Regarding this song, Robertson recalled: "It was a lifestyle of the time that most of my friends went through. Some came out the other side, and for some, the train ran off the tracks."
  • Robertson performed the song on Late Show With David Letterman and The View in support of How to Become Clairvoyant.
  • How to Become Clairvoyant debuted at #13 on the Billboard 200, surpassing the #38 peak of Robertson's self-titled 1987 solo debut release, to become the highest-charting album of Robbie Robertson's solo career.
