I have been immensely inspired by Leonard’s music and poetry for many many years. The first time I heard this particular song, as i went through Leonard’s song catalogue I actually got goose bumps, and I really loved and could relate to the song. I also like that is multi-faceted and touches on several themes, open for suggestion, and interpretation, and I had been through a rough time personally as well, a while ago, so that gave the song even a deeper meaning..I think it’s a song I think many of us can relate to, in terms of challenging periods in life. This is one of the reasons I wanted to do this song because it may help to shed light on some of these topics. I have since long wanted do do a cover of several of his songs, and I may do others as well in the future. I wanted to add something to the song – do it a bit different – and I hope that I have done it justice.
The producer of the song is Peter Larsen. I have worked with him before, and I chose him specifically, as I love his sound. He understands my musical vision
