about

Single taken from the upcoming album The Blackest Of Dogs, coming to Bandcamp on May 3rd.

This is the last track I recorded for the album and it's also the end result of my journey - both in lyrical content but also in how it came to be, musically.

The guitar part is the first and only take - no cuts, no drop-ins, no tweaks. It's just presented exactly as it was played.

Getting to the point where I can do that has been a huge step forwards for me. The vocals, too, are a massive leap in what I've been able to achieve. And while I can't claim that the phasing effect at the end was intentional, the Universe was obviously smiling on me when I pressed the record button.

Something really has happened here. Something good.

lyrics

Open up the windows
Take the padlock off the door
The way I think I'm feeling
Feels better than I thought I felt before

I'm getting back an appetite

I think that something's happened
Am I coming out of it?

I might still wobble sometimes
I'm not out of the woods
But I'm noticing things changing
And today it feels like I am feeling good

The fog is dissipating
I'm healing, bit by bit
The darkness left behind at last
I'm coming out of it
