Adrian Crowley – Halfway to Andalucia (from the album Dark eyed messenger, Chemikal Underground)

From his 8th album another haunting number to add to his collection delivered in Crowley’s signature velvet voice which can make men as well as women weak at the knees.

One particularly special moment here where the narrator sings of the funeral following his faked death.

I heard the ceremony was poorly attended
At least did they play my favourite song
Born Free

At which point a vocal chorus lifts proceedings out of the here and now into some higher space.

It is the definition of transcendance.

The fact that it achieves this with reference to a classic pop croon only makes it more profound.
