A surprise Bonus Track...
I've been trying to make clear this collection is a kind of short film inspired by this moment we're in. But not tied to it. These songs are more interested in who we'll be after this fever breaks. "Avalanche of Stars" is intended as a kind of postscript, or song for rolling credits. It's also intended as a Thank You to all of you that welcome and purchase and share this music.
You keep our ecosystem and sense of connectedness humming.
And selfishly, I've always wondered what one of my melodies would feel like in the hands of a beautiful singer like Kate. So grateful she gave so beautifully of herself here. Mack, Neilson and I are around the edges, it's kind of a gang approach to a quiet song and moment. And I suspect there's a symbolism there. Even in our quiet, we're not alone.
So genuinely, thank you.
