The last time I’d written a song by myself was in October last year, when I was still in Japan. Since coming home, I’ve been doing a fair bit of collaborating, remixing and playing live – but I’d been getting a little worried about the lack of new stuff of my own.

Several times I told myself I was going to sit down and write something – anything. But it never happened. And the longer it went on, the more difficult it seemed to get.

But today… I wrote a song!

It’s far from the best thing I’ve written: the lyrics are messy; it probably needs a vocal part on the bridge part – or a better bridge altogether; and if I’m to keep it, I obviously need to record it properly.

But I wrote something. Finally.

Hopefully, this will lead to more.
