The new Distance Of Hope single is ‘Astronautas’. It’s also the first song in Spanish of my ’12 Songs’ project where I’m releasing a new song and video at 12 on 12th of every month for 12 months. This is single number seis. Written in April 2020, I wanted to write an upbeat, positive and simple pop song as an antidote to the sad consequences of Covid-19 and the depressing state of the world at that time. A kind of manifesto to positivity! The English version is called ‘ I Want To Live In A World Of Love’. I asked my friends Carmen and Antonio for help with the Spanish lyric and loved the line ‘Somos astronautas mirando por la ventana’ (We are astronauts looking out of the window), hence the title of the Spanish version. ‘Astronautas’ is out 12 November 2020 on all streaming platforms. Watch the video below…

El nuevo sencillo por Distance Of Hope es ‘Astronautas’. Es también la primera canción en español de mi proyecto ’12 Canciones cuando lanzo una nueva canción y videoclip a las 12H del 12 de cada mes para 12 meses. Esto es sencillo numero seis. Escrito en abril 2020, quería escribir una canción optimista, positiva y sencilla come un antídoto a las consecuencias tristes de Covid-19 y el estado deprimente y agresivo del mundo en ese momento. iUn manifiesto a la positivismo, algo así! La version inglesa se llama ‘I Want To Live In A World Of Love’ (Quiero Vivir En Un Mundo De Amor). Pregunté a mis amigos Carmen y Antonio para ayuda con la letra española y me encantó la linea ‘Somos astronautas mirando por la ventana’, por tanto el título de la version española. ‘Astronautas’ sale el 12 de noviembre 2020 en todas las plataformas de streaming. Mira el videoclip…

‘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.
