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…

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.
