On My Mind 04:29
ON MY MIND You are my true love Whatcha think you’re doing with that new love? Did I hear you say you’re “doing fine”… It’s on my mind… It’s on my mind… You say "I do!" love Don’t take long to see that we are thru, love I tell myself it’s finished - and I’m fine But it’s on my mind… It’s on my mind…. Mi-ind…i-ind… uh,uh,uh,uh Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah Dodo, da-da. Do-do, do-di-do, No news is good news Every people say “no blues is good blues…” Don’t you dare turn back or turn the tide It’s on my mind… it’s on my mind… it’s on my mind

about

I wrote the song ‘I'LL GO MY OWN WAY on my nightly ‘lockdown walks’ around NW5 this autumn.

This ‘excursion’ song has a ‘stream of consciousness’ lyric about these unaligned, and sometimes quite deranged, times.
Animation is by the director CHRIS GAVIN.

I recorded it at SNAP STUDIOS, London, this time playing all the instruments myself due to COVID-19 restrictions. Recorded by Marco Pasquariello at SNAP, mixed by Robbie Nelson.

I recorded the B-side ON MY MIND at the legendary KLANGBILD studio in Berlin during my book tour there just pre-Covid. It was recorded by Sound-On-Sound magazine’s Mike Senior. It’s the last of four LTD EDITION vinyl 7” singles exclusive to ROUGH TRADE - each in the form of a letter. The first YOKO, OH is a love-letter - to my favourite Beatle - Yoko Ono. The second single FEATURETTE - another letter, to my teenage self. The third, BABY, I MISS THE INTERNET, is a letter of intent, to Donald Trump. And I'LL GO MY OWN WAY is a ‘sick note’.

7" released exclusively at Rough Trade...
