Sea Power have shared “Green Goddess”, the latest single to be released from their forthcoming new album, Everything Was Forever, which is released on 18th Feb 2021.
“Green Goddess” follows earlier singles “Two Fingers” and “Folly” which - outside of their BAFTA-winning soundtrack score for the award-winning and multi-million-selling video game Disco Elysium - represented the first new music from the band in 5 years. Where “Two Fingers” took in mortality, defiance, HP Lovecraft and V signs, and “Folly” pondered a sleepwalking humanity, “Green Goddess” casts its gaze closer to home. Vocalist and guitarist Jan Scott Wilkinson expands:
“Green Goddess was written with [guitarist] Noble. He had the initial idea for the music which I helped arrange and add vocals to. It is a love song about everything green from the Lake District to the New Forest. The places I love to be which are quiet and restorative. It is also a love song for my wife whose favourite colour is green. A rumination on human and non-human muses. There are dark and complicated things going on but sometimes it is good to forget this and go to the places and where you are happy. A hope that the future doesn't have to be at odds with the past.”
