“The Last Blue Sky” EP, following the ”Rain” EP released in 2016, is the second part of a concept called “Rain & Blue Sky” that reflects on the constant changes in our lives, which can be assimilated to the permanent changes in the weather.
“The Last Blue Sky” was also recorded with the Music Factory studio team (Julien Vonarb on the guitars and realization, Aurel Ouzoulias on the drums), and this in order to keep the same sound and ambiance I had found on “Rain”.
“The Last Blue Sky” has a sort of “end of our times” feel, and an overall underlying comforting message that we are all called to live forever and to embrace eternity guided by the inner and deep sense of love which links us all together.
I am really proud of the lyrics on this record, as every song has a powerful meaning or message to convey. Unlike the music which always comes pretty easily to me (as I am usually pretty inspired to find a new harmony or musical theme), I have always struggled with the lyrics of a new song, to summarize words don’t come easily. For “The Last Blue Sky” it was different, as I elected to work on songs where for once I had no difficulty writing the lyrics, which is for e.g. the case for “Dreamers”, which was basically written in one go.
This is by far my most powerful record to date, and I hope you will enjoy it.
