looking forward to coming back to SWEDEN and HOLLAND in november …. all tickets here xxxx
we had so much fun making it – massive thank you to everybody involved (especially the actors that ran around like naked lunatics in a field in the middle of nowhere on a monday morning …. LEGENDS !! )
I’m really really proud of this and hope you guys like it !!
if you do like it then please ( and i promise this is the last time i ask for a while ….) feel free to share it around as much as you can – it makes a massive difference !
thank you so much in advance . mike xx
i wanted to share just one more acoustic track with you . its a song called golden leaves .
we filmed it at at Linear studios in sydney which is where we recorded the entire album . as ever , please share it around if you can – i can’t tell you how much that stuff helps to spread the word .
thank you all so so much . mike xx
this is one of my favourite tracks on the new album and again one that doesn’t often get played at gigs . it’s a really massive production on the record with strings and brass and backing vocals etc so i thought it would be nice to counter balance it with this very simple and stripped back version .
again , your likes , comments and shares are massively appreciated .
can’t flipping wait for this albium to come out AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxxx
its a song that i don’t often play live and its one that a lot of you probably won’t know … i wanted to share this acoustic version with you all before the album comes out .
massive thanks to Berry for letting us film inside their beautiful cafe when the rain came down !!!! (if you live in amsterdam go and get a coffee from these guys – its flipping good !!)
and please , if you enjoy this video then feel free to share it with your friends .loads of love . mike xx
