Back to the studio

14 Oct , 2019  


It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

I’ve been busy decorating my house, enjoying a break, buying loads of amazing 80s vinyl, and sporadically feeling inspired to write some new tracks on and off over the summer. It’s never good to force these things, but I hope to be able to bring some of these to you soon.

I hope to have I Don’t Need A Lover and These Days finished for you real soon, as I would personally like to get those out into the wild, as they mean more to me than ever now, and it would feel good to be able to move on from them.

Other tracks I’ve been writing/working up, include (current) titles of On & On, If I Had Your Number, Staring At The Sun, and The Lights Are Going Out.

The track was recorded for last Christmas but streamed only to a small audience, and without download. This year, the track has been released across all worldwide streaming and download stores for you to add a little bit of magic to your Christmas.

The song recaptures the childhood magic of Christmas Eve, and listening out for Father Christmas to arrive with presents.

This is the first time that Andrew has appeared on vinyl.
