Eliza Shaddad “Blossom” – Listen

Blossom‘ was recently released by Sudanese-Scottish artist Eliza Shaddad, and it’s a timely song that captures the rapture of the awakening of new growth that is the annual miracle of Spring.  There’s an echo, perhaps, of another awakening as the world looks forward a little more hopefully to the future and Shaddad sings “I’m turning over leaves and searching for renewal.”  Maybe we shouldn’t read too much into that though, as Eliza Shaddad has claimed that the song was “born from a burgeoning love of house plants and sixties Sudanese records floating through the house.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
