Robin Trower premieres new video ‘Birdsong’

Robin Trower released a new video for ‘Birdsong’ on Wed 5th October. Robin said: ‘Birdsong’ is my favourite track from ‘No More Worlds to Conquer’ (Mascot 2022). In fact, I think it could be the best thing I’ve ever done. In my eyes, I just can’t find fault with it.

“I had this particular piece of music for a while. The guitar parts and a melody for the vocals were there, but the song didn’t really come together ’till I saw a documentary about the First World War. It really struck me and got in my head. After I watched it, I started to write lyrics, and that’s what tied everything together.

“I don’t really do big demos anymore; I just play and sing into a little recorder. So with that, we went into the studio, and my engineer, Sam, put down a drum rhythm, and I laid down the guitar. We kind of make the demo as we record the song. Then we lay down all the guitar parts and the bass, and Richard Watts comes in to do the vocals. He did a great job on this track.

The Big Hit – Birdsong

“Jimi Hendrix may have catapulted the guitar into a different stratosphere, but Robin Trower can certainly lay claim to a body of work that deserves to be heard on another planet.”
“Now an established and prized part of the British blues-rock furniture, Trower plays with the freedom, poise, and prowess of a man who has No Worlds Left To Conquer.”
“At 77 years of age, Trower is a phenomenon that still carries the torch of that 70’s texture and heavenly tone. He continues to dazzle and evolve, but there’s never any let-up in quality control.”
