I hadn’t planned on releasing brand new music, but then things took a different turn. I spilled “brain to paper” what had been piling up in my head and let the momentum take over.
Although as a songwriter it is usually a good idea to let a new song sit and revisit it after a while to make any necessary changes, I believe this song needs to be out now, and not on some record that might be released in 3 years time.
“Summer is gone” was written & recorded , mixed and mastered during the last full week of October in a house in Hamburg,
Germany, heavily but by no means only triggered by the current events in the Middle East.
It is a song that basically wrote itself in a rare moment of unfiltered creativity. It carries within the desire to come together and unite in peace and love.
This song is literally “off the record.” It was released on 3 November on Bandcamp and minm, with all other platforms to follow on 10 November. It will not appear on the album that is going to land at some point.
