Track Listing & Ross Harding Commentary

1. Black Sun Blues

"A darker, more Rock ‘n’ Roll take on the traditional 12-Bar Blues. It’s a song about paradox – light and dark, good and evil, order and chaos, constantly at war with each other to find balance."

2. Blood & Bones

"The attempt to transcend our physical self, shed our “blood and bones’’ becoming something greater – into the realm of spirit and the divine."

3. Love & Time

"Inspired by overarching themes of Love & Time."

4. Fire Away

"Diving into chaos headfirst in order to come out the other side as changed for the greater good."

5. Let It Go II (Return)

"A kind of melancholy slow blues song. This is actually my second time recording this tune. Lyrically inspired by Freud and Jung, with themes of the shadow self, alchemy and the doomed search for immortality, finally reaching acceptance of one’s mortality."
