Roine Stolt comments: “When the world shut down – all shows at risk, or cancelled, we found a way out of the pandemonium & panic by doing what we do best. Write music and record it!
There was already so many great songs & ideas in stock that just needed work and some love & perfecting.
The plan was to write and record a very ‘intuitive & inclusive’ album where we could be free to do any style to fit in a multicolour tapestry.
‘Morning News’ was an acoustic piece that was a natural choice – sort of a simple McCartney style acoustic song – that needed little or no wall of sounds.
The song is about a beautiful end, realization and acceptance of our own mortality.”
