I was just harping back to those days and sang a long a bit to the song and then my manager,Juliet Edwards heard it and said I might as well record it for later. Well by the time I had the first demo vocal I was driven and by the time I had finished, Dillie and Mafia and Fluxy and Stanley Andrews had built this amazing track and to top it all Adele Harley came up with these amazing vocals.’ The single is out on release under Clinark’s own label, Nurture Projects Music and is currently enjoying international airplay.
