We have finally reached the final production stage of the new album, now definitely called ‘Never enough’. Rhys’s production skills have gone from strength to strength, and it is now with the reproduction and distribution people. The formal release is likely to be in late October, but I should have copies by the end of August.
1 Side by side
2 Never enough
3 La Fayette
4 Strange thing
7 For granted
There are some fabulous contributions from other lovely musicians – Rhys of course but also Matt Kelly and Lucinda Fudge on strings, Myke Clifford on sax, Dawn Loombe on accordion and Brian Harvey on bass. I’m grateful to them all.
And the artwork for the cover is from our good friend and wonderful artist, Gail de Cordova.
Here’s the video of the first track on the album:
It was filmed in and around St Pancras station, Gare du nord, Gare de l’est and Gare de Lyon. I’m grateful to the SNCF and St Pancras for the publicly available pianos – the grand at the Gare de Lyon is especially wonderful. And I’m even more grateful to the people of Paris and London for going around their daily travels and inadvertently (and in one lovely moment a the end of Verse 1, advertently) participating in the film, and for proving that what makes us different makes us shine.
