    Lovely little lush ‘lovesong’. Cool mix of digital and accoustic on the mixes, too! Thanx for the rip, Paul.
    But, strange to put those lyrics on the cover, I think. They are really clear on top to hear, and repeated over and over, so no need for it.. Other than to let the selfhypnose sink in more heavily?
    Would have worked if the stylist wouldn’t have been such a big fan of Dynasty’s Joan Collins, but..uhhh never mind 😉
