(See Peter’s comment on his version of how this song was created)
Last friday, after a few calls that week from Peter, saying he had a very beautiful acoustic riff, a song was dropped in my mailbox. Peter had recorded the guitars and played with Ronald the acoustic drums, by playing a side dish and two ornamental figures. Still raw, but beautiful. So one and a half hours later I recorded the lyrics. I had written these lyrics some time ago, knowing they would fit somewhere.. so here it was.
Do you hear the birds sample, it’s real. Peter couldn’t sleep or something and recorded some overactive blackbirds in his garden. (Dit you know that birds in the city sing louder than birds in the country?)
So there was Early Bird.
