Bruce Soord, the multi instrumentalist, song writer extraordinaire returns with “Dear Life” the first single to be taken from his forthcoming, third studio album “Luminescence.”
Bruce Soord comments on the single: “Dear Life, which opens the record, doesn’t need much explaining. ‘Don’t wish that it will all be over, in the sweetest blink of an eye’. We are always told not to let life pass us by, but it’s easier said than done. And before you know it, it’s done. As my life in particular starts to age, it was an easy subject to relate to. It’s actually sung from the perspective of an elderly parent, on their deathbed, to their child.“
Bruce Soord’s 2023 studio album “Luminescence” is available in a variety of formats, including CD, LP, limited blue vinyl and a 2CD/DVD, 48 page Deluxe Hardback Book edition featuring an exclusive bonus album.
Each purchase comes with a postcard and free entry into a draw to win a test pressing LP with a hand-written lyric sheet.
Inspired by the idea of finding inner peace, “Luminescence” explores the difficulty of living in the maelstrom of the modern world. Born from days exploring various cities whilst on tour, tracks from the album feature recordings from Soord’s wanderings captured on a field recorder.
Recorded between January and June of 2023 at Soord Studios, additional strings were recorded at RAK Studio 3 in London (arranged and conducted by Andrew Skeet, a long-time member of The Divine Comedy and orchestrator on many films/tv shows, from Netflix’s smash hit Black Mirror to David Attenborough’s Green Planet).
Mastered by The Pineapple Thief’s Steve Kitch, the artwork is by Carl Glover.
