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.
