The Flower Kings have released a new video for their new single Morning News, a song from the band’s upcoming double album Islands, which will be released through InsideOut Music on October 30.
Roine Stolt explains: “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, realisation and acceptance of our own mortality.”
