VAN WALKER 'LONG NIGHT'S JOURNEY TO DAY' | 'WHEN YOU WERE MINE' | 'DRIFTING TOO FAR FROM SHORE'
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Van Walker has always been one to march to the beat of his own distinctive drum, and this year – with all the upheaval it offers, is no exception. The follow-up to lead single ‘Spirit World’ won’t be one, or even two songs, but instead three from his long-awaited solo album "Ghosting".
Recent months in isolation, and with touring and live shows also on a current indefinite hiatus has necessarily changed the way many musicians create and share music; and in this Walker has been no different to his peers. With an altered release plan and tour, Walker is champing on the bit to share his new music and believes there’s no time like the present.
‘Long Night’s Journey To Day’
Long nights journey to day/The price I must pay/For loving you, babe
This track is a cry for forgiveness and regret, but also vigilance and survival. A melancholic sorry note, if you will. Guitar wizard Jeff Lang lends his talents, this time on bass guitar, while Van’s voice shimmers with feeling.
‘When You Were Mine’
Sitting in my old bed ruminating but it ain’t a crime/Thinking ‘bout the future but I wish I was back in time/When you were mine
We all know about powerful memories and the grip they can have on us. Lamenting lost love and musing of better times, Walker doesn’t resist memory’s bitter chains.
‘Drifting Too Far From Shore’
I've lost that spark of passion I always used to have/Don't know where it's gone to or if it's ever coming back/Can't find no direction, tell me what's the reason for/Drifting too far from shore
Here Van explores the sometimes invisibility of depression, trauma and illness that leads to further isolation and abandonment.
