I'm proud and happy to bring you my new single Merry Go Round
Find Merry Go Round on Spotify, Apple Music, or YouTube
This song came about during a walk in the British Peak District a while ago. It was warm, a late summer day. The heather fields were in bloom. On those wide, desolate moors covered in a violet haze, I suddenly felt completely free. Disentangled from daily life and all its pressure, obligations, routines... As if I had hopped off some ever-spinning carousel. That's how the idea was born of a Merry Go Round.
I wrote this with my long-time writing partners Danny & Dave in England, and spent many late nights in the studio with Lieuwe Roonder, carefully crafting and refining the production.
I'm so happy to bring you new music. It's been a while! :) Merry Go Round marks a new beginning. It's the first of a string of new releases. As we know I won't be able to play it live on stage to you any time soon, but If you like the track feel free to give it a share on your socials or add it to your playlist.
in cycles, side by side
on the carousel we ride
the scenes passing by
as we slowly spin clockwise
only to find with every loop
a similar world all new...
