You Are Here: Track 11: Roll Up The World Pt. 2
We are here. The final track on the album and the final look behind the scenes at the creative process that led to it happening. You Are Here is released tomorrow, but today we are looking at the climactic 14 minute epic, Roll Up The World Pt 2.
You Are Here: Track 10: Time Is Running Out
We’re up to track 10 of our countdown to the release of You Are Here on 1st July and the title couldn’t be more appropriate. Time Is Running Out. A song that has had a longer life than Fine Soft Day. Time Is Running Out is a re-working of a song written by Martin many moons ago, called...er... Time Is Running Out. It will make sense when you read on, we promise.
You Are Here: Track 9: Rhyme
With only a few days before the release of You Are Here, our behind the scenes look at the creative process reaches track 9, Rhyme.
As we covered earlier, this is the sister to track 2 on the album, Reason. In fact, we intended to title the tracks “Reason...” and “... And Rhyme” but when it got to saving file names with ... Mac said no and we quickly went off the idea.
You Are Here: Track 8: Dance Of The Little Lights From Nowhere
We're up to track 8 of the album today and we've arrived at an instrumental track which was the last one to be added to the running list. It's a track of two halves, which is appropriate as the two halves were written completely separately.
You Are Here: Track 7: Grandfather
Grandfather. The song we wrote twice. It first appeared around about 1998, having been written by Mark, and was a regular feature of our live performances, but it was never recorded. When we were in the early stages of putting together You Are Here, we realised that Grandfather would be a great fit for the concept. The only trouble was, nobody could remember any of the lyrics for the verses. So there was only one thing to do...
You Are Here: Track 6: Roll Up The World, Pt. 1
The second instrumental track on the album was the first track to be completed. What started as something of a throwaway idea grew into quite a powerful piece. It was a classic case of the sum being greater than the parts, which we didn't realise when we were recording it...
You Are Here: Track 5: Time Flows By
7 days to go before You Are Here is released and today we are looking behind the scenes at the creation of the fifth track on the album, Time Flows By.
You Are Here: Track 4: Five Songs
The countdown continues. 8 days to go before the release of Fine Soft Day’s new album, You Are Here and we are continuing our behind the scenes look at the creative process that lead to each track. Today it’s the turn of (confusingly) track 4: Five Songs.
Those of us who prefer music to be something tangible can rejoice at the news that Fine Soft Day's forthcoming album, You Are Here, will be available on CD as well as on digital platforms.
You Are Here: Track 3: Journey To Hear
9 days to go to the release of You Are Here, and we’re continuing our sneaky peek at the writing and recording of the album. Today, we’re looking at the third track on the album, Journey To Hear.
