KDMusic has released new single 'Bright Sky Blues', featuring John Hegarty, available now on all digital platforms. The single is the second release in the series leading to an autumn album, and is based on the "do not worry" sayings from the sermon on the mount on Matthew 6. "I hope it's a timely message after the last 18 months and a cheerful drive time addition to people’s summer playlists", comments KDMusic's Dave Whitcroft.
"Bright Sky Blues is fun summer acoustic song in open tuning or DADGAD on guitar & dobro. There are hints of 'Sesame Street' in the guitar & 'I wish they all could be Californian' on the bass, with some nice brushes on the drums. I ran out of fuel once near the Mourne Mountains Co. Down, and had no mobile or cell coverage, but it was a beautiful day & I knew I'd get a lift eventually. So I sat on the bonnet (hood) of car under a bright blue sky, surrounded by summer birdsong & buzzing bees and remembered these words from the sermon on the mount, in Matthew 6:
"Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these."
To fit in with that idea of the 'worry free beauty' of the bird and flowers, this lyric video has lots of fun animal clips that adults, families and kids will enjoy: People chilling in hammocks, pickup trucks with no gas, sea otters, wallabies, pigs, parrots, ducks, ducklings, camels, peacocks, dogs, orang-utans, love birds, a bald man, meerkats, pangolins, shelties, butterflies, flowers, beautiful girls, happy kids, lemurs, swans, goats, sheep, gibbons, kids with dogs, lion, armadillos, hedgehogs, Irish setters, black bear, penguins, elephants, pups, rhinos, hippopotamus, puppies, puppets, potters, woodworkers. I hope the song makes it onto your summer road trip playlist this year. we've had enough worry and its time for some fun!"
