Walking on Broken Glass

The winner of the popular vote for $2+ Patreon backers! I made it minor, with a harpsichord/cello-heavy instrumentation.

Obviously Annie Lennox is an amazing singer, and I haven’t tried to top her here, but I did put a lot of work and consideration into the vocal arrangement and performances (as you can hear there are tons of layers.)

Here is the official music video of the original song — with Hugh Laurie and John Malkovich! www.youtube.com/watch?v=y25stK5ymlA I have a fantasy of shooting a video for the cover with my Rococo.co friends, but who knows if that will ever come to be.

There’s another cover coming your way on Monday, and hopefully in the next couple weeks I will finish writing lyrics for Untitled Mega-Banger for my album. The kickstarter for that is going great, btw, though I’d love to make a push to get a bunch of $1 pledges from strangers.


Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! In the East Bay, wildflowers are exploding all over gorgeous green hillsides and I’m getting outside as much as possible (which is not very much when one has a kid who says he doesn’t want to go ANYWHERE until “The Sickness” is over.)
