ethras The minor key is really brings together the mood for this song. Made me think of water churning forward in a murky gray sea.

I’m proud to announce the release of my first Depeche Mode cover in 14 years!

It’s a bit like getting two covers in one. I arranged the introduction and first verse in the style of Shouldn’t Have Done That, the creepy nursery rhyme from A Broken Frame that actually gave me nightmares as a teenager. The rest is pure Shake the Disease, but it maintains the 6/8 time signature.

With the backing of my Patreon supporters, I've decided to make my entire 21-release discography free to download on Bandcamp! I want to make all of my music free for anyone in the world to enjoy, and trust that those who do will value it enough to contribute.

Bandcamp provides 200 free downloads per month. After that, I have to buy additional credits. Rather than unleash all 21 at once, I'm setting a new one free every Friday. I'm happy to pay for any overage out of my own pocket.
