IMMORTALS THE SINGLE: OUT NOW!

YOU CAN WATCH THE TRACK AND DOWNLOAD THE SINGLE BELOW

 

‘Immortals’ is the new single from Casimir Greenfield. ‘Immortals’ is taken from Cas’s forthcoming album ‘Boy In The Attic’ and is one of the most recent recordings from this extraordinary project.

 

‘Immortals’ is at once a celebratory song, a song of fear and dread, and ultimately, a song of hope.

Celebratory because Cas grew up in the era when love and peace seemed all we needed to save a world on the brink of madness. Much has changed and yet, perhaps, nothing has changed.

 

Fear and dread, for these are once more, much troubled times. Our aggressors are all around, hidden, unseen and without compassion, mercy or love.

 

Hope? Well, maybe, just maybe, love and peace really can save our world.

 

 

‘Immortals’ was indeed written in the early morning on the 'last cold day of winter'. The initial recordings were finished later that day and feature Cas on looped ‘stomp boot’, acoustic guitar, analogue synth and vocals. That was it! That was how we started.

 

Producer Mike later added bass to Cas’s analogue synth, together building up the layers with percussion and elctro-handclaps. This version was duly mixed and subsequently merged with the original acoustic to form what became known as the Glasto DJ Mix as it was secretly debuted at one of the dance tents in that summer festival of 2014.

 

Early in 2015 it became clear that audience response to live outpourings of ‘Immortals’  indicated that this was a special song that resonated on many levels with the listener. A sure sign that an interesting and hooky track had been born. Thus Pete Rosser added piano and Cassius Frazer a dusting of banjo and with new, fresh vocals from Cas, with harmonies from Mike, the track was ready to hit the airwaves.

 

And so we have it. A ‘new’ song bursting out of its skin and ready to make its mark out there in the real world. Have a listen and judge for yourself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Immortals – words and music Casimir Greenfield

 

 

  • If World War Three is on the way there’s nowhere we can hide
  • La la las and pillow dark won’t help to stem the tide
  • So we try cling to something that nothing bad can change
  • That we lived our little lifetimes through a bright and golden age

 

 

  • And love, love – love hear my beating heart

 

  • We are like marble
  • We are like granite
  • We are like air
  • Like the sphere of a planet
  • Like the arc of a rainbow rising up to the sky
  • We are immortal and immortals never die.

 

 

  • And in this last cold day of winter at the keening of the knives
  • I give thanks to love and nature for keeping us alive
  • I don’t know where we’re headed before my soul takes flight
  • So let’s smash the walls of darkness down and step into the light

 

 

  • And love, love – love hear our beating hearts

 

 

  • We are like diamonds
  • The core of the sun
  • Like the stars in the heavens
  • We are second to none
  • Like the arc of a rainbow rising up to the sky
  • We are immortal and immortals never die.

 

  • And love, love – love hear my beating heart
