Oiseau

2016
I Dreamed An Island

I wanted the album to end with a plea. Oiseau, written the day after the 2015 Paris attacks while I was on tour in Tunisia, describes a sleeping man caught in a nightmare of terrorist violence . In it, he hears the hollow thud of bullets, of bombs exploding, of bodies falling. From the darkness of his dream, he calls to a songbird outside his window to wake him from the nightmare. He begs the bird to sing to him, to bring him back to the light, to wake him with song. Music is his only hope.

The song describes the aftermath of a drone strike in Syria.

Bring Down the Wall

2016
I Dreamed An Island

lyrics in Salentino by Mauro Durante

More and more walls are going up around the world. Whether it’s Donald Trump’s idea for a great wall of Mexico or the Calais fence, stories of structures or barriers that separate one people from another fill the airwaves and screens of the world’s daily news. On my Island utopia, child-like as it may be, the walls would all come down.
Bring down the wall break it stone by stone
