Simone Felice “Year Around The Sun” – Another year gone, what’s new?

The superb Simone Felice has a new single out, ‘Year Around the Sun’, and it is his first new music since 2018.  it is also his first recording for new label Chrysalis.  It is, of course, a reflection on recent events as Simone Felice explained: “I wrote this song on New Year’s morning, 2021,” says Felice, “I woke up feeling empty inside. Like an old cornhusk battered by the wind. I’m sure the whisky in my whisky the night before helped me arrive there. I think it’s important to recognize and own the raw fact that we’ve all just been through the most surreal collective trauma this past year and more: seemingly endless lockdowns, constant fear and confusion, a recalibration of what’s real and what’s important. My hope is that perhaps with a little help from our friends, music, laughter, and time, we’ll find a rebirth.”

Simone Felice headlines London’s Lexington on 25th October.

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?
