In the city of the cities My honey ...etcetera I wish you more air in the underground no more traffic jams, no people stopping you from who you are. I miss you, my friend! No adventures (for me) I'm not looking for the trainers ( on the line) we used to notice ah, my camera is hidden in the corner I wish you, only good touch on your shoulder by good souls who challenge you and make you don't give up In the city of the cities I think of her sometimes maybe she sits on the double-decker falling in love with raindrops painting a landscape on the window maybe she holds her camera, maybe she is not As I remember she is a lover of simplicity

about

3 track mini release with the artwork by @youniverce 💓
Includes a beautiful remix by friend Myoptik of the song which always had a special place in my heart. I originally wrote that tune for my friend Suzi for her birthday. It was created out of missing her a lot and not being able to give her a hug or spend time with her couple of years ago.

The lyrics and melancholy connects to the COVID-19
Isolation and I think this music has to be shared now more than ever to soothe anxiety and insomnia, to heal those who are missing others.

I hug the trees a lot now by the way 😊🌬️☯️: stay strong, breath, eat your favourite ice - cream, have baths in the middle of the day, love yourself and be kind to yourselves 💚💜💙💛I hope this music will help as I deeply feel that my purpose on this planet is to help, connect and inspire through music.

p.s Bonus Track is perfomed with my soul brother Sarian James on drums. My daughter challenged me last year to do the cover of Breathin' and I rehearse with Sarian for the future releases and live shows. I have couple of different versions of this song, but this one feels like it want to be on this release. It was a beautiful sunny day when we recorded this at University of York at Rymer Auditorium.
