Julian Taylor’s next release is called ‘Anthology Volume One‘ and, as you might guess, it’s his first retrospective from his various musical outings with the band Staggered Crossing, the Julian Taylor Band, and his more recent international breakthrough solo music.
‘City Song‘ has its origin in Taylor’s first forays into touring, as he explains: “I was inspired to write this song once I started travelling with my first band. I knew that we weren’t anywhere for long and that made me weary. I had not anticipated that life on the road would be so tough and so unglamorous. It’s a song about trying to justify being away and my own desire to explore a world that I hadn’t yet but also partially regretting the way that I had chosen to do it.”
This is one of three singles that are being released prior to ‘Anthology Volume One‘, which they will also feature on. ‘Anthology Volume One‘ itself will appear in October.
