Nothing new under the sun, just a new great song by this mythical Australian songwriter, as a long delayed new echo of his "Mr. Somewhere" which started in 1985 a charm still alive for his fans, as as a promise of a seventh album, almost, yes, fifteen years after "Apart" (1997).
One of the two versions (the Spring one) is offered as a free download on the website of the french Magic RPM magazine. The experience is very much like smelling a fragrant rose bush in the early morning (Spring version) or as the sun is disappearing (Autumnal), on one side fresher and bracing and at the other side entrancing and heady.
It is an unexpected, precious and ravishing pleasure, no surprise that I favor the slower slowcore autumnal version, drinking rooibos tea at the end of a warm summer day.
