How Scared I Am To Live - Chantal Acda Demo (2016)

from by dakota suite

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    After many requests, I have put together a compilation of all the rare compilation tracks and added some outtakes and other bits and pieces that I thought may be of interest. For specifics see notes added to individual songs. These are songs we worked hard on and liked but somehow never made it onto main releases...I will only be making 50 of these and when they are gone they are gone. All hand made and numbered editions.

    Image is mock up of what CD will look like. I will make these professionally with printed stickered art on a card sleeve.

    Includes digital pre-order of this drowning light. You get 3 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released.

Before going to Japan to complete "The Indestructibility of The Already Felled" I had an idea that I wanted to write songs for Chantal to sing as I so loved her voice. We tried two songs but for some reason the whole record never materialised. I went and recorded new versions for "The Indestructibility of The Already Felled".

I am sorry about that as she is so beautiful a singer. This song survives.
