With Simon Lynge‘s fourth LP, Deep Snow, scheduled for a November 23rd release, he today shares “Age Of Distraction”, the first single off that album. Here, the renowned Greenlandic/Scandinavian singer-songwriter composes a piece that delves into our current world which, he reckons, is characterized by numerous vices and avoidable misfortunes. It was recorded in a secluded cottage in the green hills of Wales and then finished at London’s Narcissus Studios. In the project, he gets to work with Richard Lobb, a longtimefrind of his.
“I just wanted to acknowledge the underlying anxiety of existence in this age and the longing for connection that I believe is so pervasive in modern humans. We have instant access to information, but our knowledge of the source of a meaningful life is at an all-time low. We look out of our eyes and forget to observe with our heart.”
The song that further urges us to re-evaluate our relationship with mother nature was released via Integrity Records/Songcrafter Music. Grab a listen, and feel free to do so repeatedly.
