New songs to sing
If we saw each other last year on tour, it means that I was trying to be all over the place, restless and moving a lot, jumping from buses to ferries to hotels, up all night as if we didn’t need any sleep, singing, some kind of lyrical sobbing, suffering from my own delusions, playing harmonica, mostly.
It was a beautiful time to just travel around and see what everybody else is doing. All that speed around you and then it just stops.
I spent time in Bukidnon after the tour, sleeping, mostly. We stayed in a convent and lived with the priests and the nuns. They left me alone, and I was recording in solitude.
On the weekend you will hear two new songs. These songs are part of a new album that we are making.
I’m very excited. I hope you get to hear them.
