Golden

March 4, 2017

This was a saga. Test pressing after test pressing. Put me off vinyl for life. Finally we got a company who could do it properly, but it took a year to make. A year for a 7″ single. Not like that in 1966, when I think this song could have been around. Obsession and desire in a wash of piano and guitars. And French horns and flutes. And a beautiful vocal from Tanya Donelly. It deserved a physical release I felt, and I’m so glad it’s finally come together. 

Here’s a slow film to go with it, walking up the steps of Hatshepsut’s temple on the left bank of the Nile. Next week you get the video for Anyone but Yourself, and the single gets mailed out. Thanks for bearing with us. 

The single is available from patrickfitzgerald.bandcamp.com
