Taken from Signe Marie Rustad’s third album ‘When Words Flew Freely‘ this is a warm and perfect piano led singer-songwriter outing very much in the way of Carole King or Joni Mitchell.

With beautiful evocations of the bleakness of “concrete deserts” it’s an encouragement to keep on keeping on, or as Rustad says “The phrase ‘Die With Your Boots On’ is kind of an alternative way of saying ‘don’t give up’. Despite anything you may be going through, don’t ever give up. Don’t take those boots off – don’t stop walking onwards”
