Surprise! Here’s a free single called ‘Covers’ from my upcoming LP.
The LP itself will be called ‘Like Lovers’ and will feature plenty more dark and light little vignettes on love and relationships.
As promised, ‘Like Lovers’ will be mostly clarsach (small harp) based, but there are a few surprises and variations on the theme along the way.
Oh! And I made a video for ‘Covers’. It’s amazing what you can achieve in 30 minutes with a torch in a dark room!
If you like the song, the video, or both, do me a flavour and share it with your pals on Facebook… or something. If you hate it, give your enemies a buzz
I know this is a bit out of the blue. If it was an official type release I’d have buzzed the crap out of this free single for about 3 months leading up to its release. However, one of the nice things of being an independent musician is that I can do whatever the hell I want, whenever the hell I feel like it
Accordingly, the full LP, ‘Like Lovers’, will be available at some point in the next few months. Who gives a rat’s tits about release dates? It’s ready when it’s ready!
