Zephyr 06:51
All work and no play can leave you blind Time for a rest in the shade Time to make time to be revived These hay bales will look great once they’re done But in the heat of midday Linger a while and be reminded Sweet breath of Zephyr’s song Sweet breath of Zephyr’s song to the sun When worries all pile on Make sure that you hold on Springtime will come Where ancient history’s written in the walls Get so excited by life Brought here by all that came before us Sweet breath of Zephyr’s song Sweet breath of Zephyr’s song to the sun When hopes and plans go wrong Make sure that you hold on Summer will come Time to make time to be delighted Linger a while and be inspired Space to make space so you remember Pause to refresh when minds are tired Checking to check that hearts are open Grace to give grace when this world’s sore Take stock to restock on compassion Love choosing love if you’re unsure Ancient history’s written in the walls We weather storms in this life Forgetting all that came before us Oh oh Sweet breath of Zephyr’s song Draw breath and sing along to the One When troubles all pile on Remember to hold on Springtime will come Springtime will come

about

Following the success of Things Unseen in April this year, I Am The Manic Whale are back with this companion release, which is available exclusively from Bandcamp as a free download. Yes that’s correct, the Christmas Selection Box is completely free to download! As part of the funding process for releasing Things Unseen, I Am The Manic Whale offered to record cover versions of songs chosen by fans. These songs are collected together here for everyone to enjoy, alongside some live recordings of songs from Things Unseen and some new original material.

All these recordings were made in the second half of 2020 during a global pandemic. Good times.
