With only a few more days before I release my next video and single, I am filled with nervous excitement and joy. Fallen Man came out of the blue. It wasn’t planned.
I had actually planned to release an entirely different song. However, after trying to record it over and over, without getting anywhere, I decided to just leave it alone for the moment. That is something I’ve learned to do of late. Rather than beating a dead horse, it’s better to just move forward and try something different.
Fallen Man began one night, several weeks ago, when I was wide-awake and not remotely close to falling asleep. So, I wound up in my studio jotting down the first few lines, wondering as I wrote,
“Where is this going?”
Somewhere within the next day or so, I sat down and began to compose the music. It was quick and spontaneous. I recorded the entire song in less than an afternoon. The best part was that I hadn’t even finished the lyrics. I had no idea how the song was going to end.
Yes, I recorded my vocals without writing an ending, but I knew the ending by the time the track came to the end. It hit me and I kept recording. By the time I stopped the recording, I could barely see through my tears. I understood where the song was going.
I mixed and mastered the track over the next couple days, but I was already beginning to cast people for the music video. Crazy, right? This song that had come when I least expected it was turning into a production.
For the last few weeks, I had the pleasure of working with some friends I’ve known since my teens, as well as some brand new ones I met over the summer. Special thanks to all the beautiful people involved.
I am so excited to share the final product with you! In the meantime, check out a promo and behind the scenes video!
