‘Invisible Armies’ is out today 12th October and is the 5th in my ’12 Songs’ project where I’m releasing a new song and video at 12 on 12th of every month for 12 months. Written at the start of lockdown in March, it’s my tribute to the NHS, not just during the pandemic period, but in general. In an increasingly uncertain world, the NHS provides a vital public service which needs to be appreciated more by everyone, especially governments. And even more so, during the Covid pandemic. Watch the video below…

‘Invisible Armies’ (Ejércitos Invisibles) sale hoy el 12 de octubre. Escrita al principio del confinamiento en marzo, es my homenaje al Sistema Nacional de Salud, no solo durante la pandemia, sino también en general. En un mundo cada vez más inseguro, el Sistema Nacional de Salud prove un servicio publico fundamental que necesita ser más apreciado por todos, especialmente los gobiernos y aún más durante la pandemia de Covid.

New single ‘This Is How And Where We Collide’ is out today!

The second single of my ’12 Songs’ project where I’m releasing a new song at 12 on the 12th of every month for 12 months. The first single was ‘Lisbon’.

I got the idea for this song after seeing a couple arguing in a bar and witnessing a car crash later that night. Never knew if it was the same people but got the title from that situation.

One of the things I love about this ’12 Songs’ project is that every song is whole in itself. it isn’t part of a cohesive sound of an album and as a result, every song has a completely different style. This song is more indie/pop, whereas the first one ‘Lisbon’ was more chill out, ambient pop and the third single is more funky.

Listen to the new single on all streaming platforms!

Hoy ha lanzado el nuevo single de Distance Of Hope. Se llama ‘This Is How And Where We Collide’ (Esto Es Cómo Y Donde Cochamos). Es el segundo single de mi proyecto ’12 Canciones’ cuando lanzo una canción a las 12H del 12 de cada mes para 12 meses. El primer single era ‘Lisbon’.

“Pensé del titulo de esta canción después de ver a una pareja discutiendo en un bar y luego viendo un accidente de coche la misma noche. No sabía nunca si fueron las mismas personas. Me llamó la atención.”

“Lo que me encanta de este proyecto ’12 Canciones’ es que cada canción es independiente con una identidad especifica y no una parte de un sonido cohesivo de un álbum. Cada canción tiene su propio estilo. Esta canción es más indie pop, mientras la primera ‘Lisbon’ era más chillout y tranquila y la tercera será algo más funky.”

Escucha la nueva canción en todas las plataformas de streaming.

‘Lisbon’ is the first song I’m releasing as part of my 12 Songs’ project where I’ll be releasing a new song and accompanying video at 12pm (midday) on the 12th of each month for the next 12 months.

It isn’t in fact about the city of Lisbon, but was inspired by a TV show called ‘Somebody Feed Phil’. The presenter Phil Rosenthal was so enamoured with his visit to the city of Lisbon that his childlike enthusiasm struck me, so I thought that our own ‘Lisbon’ could be wherever you want it to be and you need to keep hold of it and not take it for granted.

I’ve just finished work on my second music video. This one is for ‘Lisbon’, one of a batch of new songs I’ve written and recorded over the last couple of months of lockdown.

Being a ‘music person’, I never thought I’d get into the visual side of things but I’ve actually quite enjoyed it as it’s been quite a challenge technically and creatively. Am looking forward when we can all get outside again more and come up with interesting stuff from ‘the world outside’. Especially looking forward to spending time by the sea again.

Berlin is one of my most favourite cities in the world and when I was last there in November, I visited the Bauhaus Museum there which was phenomenal. As you’ll see in the video, I was especially taken with some of the film, as well as the design you could see there.

It was quite easy to enjoy the sense of being immersed in these films and I hope you get that sense while watching this video for ‘Leaving Berlin’ which started from a David Bowie song ‘Where Are We Now?’ which references Berlin mixed in with my own experience of this wonderful city.
