The remaining songs on the album are equally compelling, and are must listens for the summery months ahead.
Ed had the following to say about the new album:
“Last year I had some big life changes and decisions to make. During this time everything became confusing & draining, I felt like I started seeing life through a black-and-white lens, so the concept behind this record was to use music as a way of bringing back color and positive energy to life. It was inspired by friends, family, places, and experiences, becoming almost like an audio diary of the last couple of years, sound tracking my thoughts and feelings at particular moments, as I navigated through a transitional phase in life. I did a lot of moving around during this time, so the album was written between Devon (UK), Berlin (GER) & Melbourne (AUS) and each track transports me back to those places, absorbing the energy and hues of those places. I’m very happy to share the full album with the world and I hope it can take the listener to the vibrant places I went to while creating it.”
