Recently two lovely men who sing to me as I go about my life have brought out new albums. Firstly there's 'Can't Forget: A Souvenir of the Grand Tour' from Leonard Cohen. Just watch this little clip that's featured to introduce a really cracking new upbeat version of 'Tower of Song'. It's funny and further proof that this bloke should be remembered for his wit rather than being a miserable sod.
Passenger also has a new offering. He's a prolific little soul. Whispers II is filled with really sad tracks but then you do sometimes need melancholy, maybe as a reminder that suffering is part and parcel of the human condition and something we all face. There's a version of this song, 'Words'. It's incredibly poignant and seems to sum up a quote that I came across a few months back. 'If you have chemistry you only need one thing. Timing. And timing's a bitch'.
