Astral Drive Wishing I Could Change The World
Out now is a new 3-track single from Astral Drive. “Wishing I Could Change the World” is taken from the self-titled album and now re-mixed for radio by the legendary Dave Bascombe. The single includes 2 new recordings; a cover of the Goffin/King classic 'Up on the Roof' and new song ‘Who Loves You’.
"'Up on the Roof' has such evocative, melancholic lyrics", says Phil "and in my slowed down version, based on Laura Nyro’s 1970’s recording, I wanted to let the words come to the fore - the wide eyed hope and the heart wrenching sadness".
"The great reception for Astral Drive inspired me to write the lyrics for a dreamy song that wasn’t finished in time to make that first album. 'Who Loves You’ is about how life can change in a heartbeat and how insecurity can haunt us just as easily as love can lift us."
Astral Drive is songwriter/producer, Phil Thornalley’s vision of a long lost album from the 1970s. Writing, singing and playing all the instruments in the style of 70’s legends Todd Rundgren and Stevie Wonder. The eponymous debut Astral Drive album is out now!
