Sing To Me

Tim Bowness is set to release his third solo album, Stupid Things That Mean The World on the 17th July 2015 and you can stream Sing To Me from the album below.

Tim describes Sing To Me as being “Originally a no-man demo called Best Boy Electric*. I heard this for the first time in over 20 years when Steven Wilson sent it to me in October 2014 for consideration for the reissue of no-man’s Lost Songs album.

I’d completely forgotten the song, and on hearing it again couldn’t believe we’d not pursued it further. The no-man version was skeletal with an improvised, incomplete lyric, but on re-hearing the song in 2014, it felt special to me and I knew where I’d like to take it musically. A new lyric was written as were a couple of new instrumental themes.

One of my favourite songs on the album, it reminds me of aspects of the early no-man that I loved, while also feeling very much a part of the music I’m currently making.”

* The original no-man demo appears on the bonus disc of Stupid Things That Mean The World.

Burning Shed are also selling a new, album themed Tim Bowness t-shirt.
