Porcelain Raft to Release New Album Next Month (May 15 2020). Today his new single “Come Rain” is out and with an out of space video created by Rä Di Martino.
“The world stopped. I managed to come back to Italy the day before the airports were on lockdown. As I stepped in Rome I felt frightened, it’s surreal to see Rome silent. You can feel how tense people are. On the other side, you can tell there’s a lot of solidarity. Helping the neighbour with little things for instance. We have been confined in our houses and exposed to big numbers and huge-scale operations. This is why I decided to share these songs now. What a better time to hear our inner voice. This album is my rain chant in the time of drought, Come Rain is an invitation to look inward, into our micro-cosmos, whatever we may find. To look for that place within us that is everything but hell, so we can give it space and let it dance.” – Porcelain Raft
“Love Is Blindness” is a song by rock band U2, and the twelfth and final track on their 1991 album Achtung Baby. The song was written on piano by lead singer Bono during the recording sessions for U2’s 1988 album Rattle and Hum. Originally intending to give the song to singer Nina Simone, the band decided to keep it for Achtung Baby after playing it together. Thematically, the song describes a failing romance, mixing personal themes with imagery of metaphorical acts of terrorism. (Keep reading on Wikipedia)
