Moment Of Surrender. I got to know this song a while back when Brian Eno put me on to it. We were talking about songs that use “familiar chords for unfamiliar durations” - and how useful this trick can be for songwriting- and he pointed me towards this U2 track as a good example. As soon as I heard it I felt an affinity with the lyrics and music and I’ve loved playing it ever since. I recorded this with Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Hollow Coves) last August at his studio in Devon and I’m crazy about the menacing synth that comes in at the second verse 😈 Listen via this link : https://nickmulvey.lnk.to/MomentOfSurrenderFP

Having toured Wake Up Now for the last year and a half, living with and performing the songs as I have, I now know some things about the material that I perhaps didn't know when it was fresh and so, as a little end-of-year offering, coz 2018 has been so generous with me, here's presenting... Wake Up Now, 'Directors Cut' . Ta dahhh! This is a playlist on Spotify where we can have fun with some new elements that streaming music offers. I can make alterations to track ordering, sub out studio versions of tracks for live versions, even adding in new songs altogether, the releases can keep evolving. (Its like the painter being able to sneak into the gallery at night and add a few cheeky new brushstrokes to the picture on the wall). First up is a new track ordering of the songs from Wake Up Now. It's a different flow to the songs (I think I prefer this new flow. Do you agree? Let me know!) So, ENJOY. Let me know what you think and let me know what you'd like more of. Love, N x https://nickmulvey.lnk.to/AWUNSo
Today the #frackfreefour boys had their sentences quashed and will be released from prison tomorrow. I’m overjoyed for them. I spoke about these guys from the stage each night of this recent UK tour because they are, and never were, criminals. They are men who are standing up for local communities and the environment. When I see their picture I see myself and I have been deeply moved by this story. I wrote my song We Are Never Apart back 2016 in a moment of sorrow and rage as the government straight ignored the political process and went ahead with fracking plans in Lancashire (which actually started this week) despite a county referendum that was a near-unanimous ‘NO’, and wide-scale knowledge that fracking is a highly polluting and toxic process. Fracking in this age of climate crisis is indefensible.
Bristol you were BEAUtiful on Friday night. I really want to say thank you for everyone who came along, shared the moment with us AND gave my Dad dancing the benefit of the doubt... I have been a little quiet on my FB page, but I'm gonna be sharing with you some of the best moments we're having on the road. Big love - I'm always honoured to play for you.
