The Wings of Your Love is the first song that I wrote the lyrics for so it’s a special moment for me, sharing Wings with the world - I love to reinterpret classic songs, and they don’t come much bigger than Bridge Over Troubled Water
For The Wings of Your Love, Jimmy and I wanted to write a full-of-joy love song that one might imagine as the theme tune to a big romantic movie. Musically it’s inspired by of the sounds of Elton John, David Bowie and the Beatles and lyrically it depicts that fluttery “sunny” feeling of falling in love.
I love reinterpreting great songs but I’m not a tribute act. My own songs are ultimately what I exist for, as an artist, and we have recorded lots more exciting original tracks for next year. Jimmy’s arrangements on both of these songs is very cool and the musicians are in flying form. These are two big ballads and we made two videos that work well together as a pair or on their own. Two songs and a diptych of music videos.
They were each a pleasure to sing and to create with my fabulous band.
