“Early in the year feeling/ fade away/ something has clearly gone today/ dont know what i can do but i know /i know/ i know/ its the worst thing to put you in a song/ as the words come i know that it was wrong/ early in the evening but i know/ i know/ i know”
“Wintersong” is one of those hushed and wistful tunes that makes one reminisce about times gone by. Blake Mills showcases his talent as an artist here, anchoring the song with some great acoustic production and strong vocals and just when you think you’ve got the whole song figured out he brings it into Fleetwood Mac Rumours territory with some great back and forth with an unknown female vocalist. A perfect heartwarming song for those cold spring nights. The free download after the jump, plus a great live bonus track.
Todays bonus is taken from Blake Mills great live Daytrotter session, a little barn burner foot stomper called “Hey Lover” which in this humble bloggers opinion far surpasses the studio version, a feat hard to come by in modern music.
