Although I've kept it a secret. People tuned into Instagram live at the studio yesterday to catch the tracking of the last song on the record. GOLDEN. One last time. Being given the chance to do a version at the highest quality with a string section. I'm compelled to take one more crack at it.
If every soul had a song, this would surely would be mine. It was written at a time when I moved 5,000 miles from home, scared, defeated and alone. But I chose to forgive people that caused me so much pain. I can't tell you how many people talk to me about this song on a regular basis and what it means to them.
This is the connection I long for. Through music I can reach a whole other level of communication with others. This is for all of you, these past 13 years that you've been there. It's all come full circle.
Recording backing vocals, piano and electric guitar start next week. Then we'll be on to mixing & mastering.
