The song is from his forthcoming album Searcher Dreamer
After a great release for the debut single from sophomore album 'Searcher Dreamer', Blake's Fortune is back with the second single, 'Redwood Heart'.
Blake's Fortune is the project of Dublin-based musician John Lennon. 'Redwood Heart', a laidback yet upbeat tune, features backing vocals from Ailbhe Reddy (who also helped out on 'Searcher').
Speaking about his upcoming album, Lennon says: "In comparison to Hello World's coastal theme, Searcher Dreamer takes a more inland approach and is a more earthy and ethereal affair. A tale of feeling lost, finding love, losing love, and trying desperately to find hope from within a seemingly hopeless situation. Sonically it’s got a rather old-fashioned sound, due to the vintage gear that was used in the recording. It gives the whole album a rootsy vibe. As for the recording process itself, it was an organic one. Each musician made full use of their artistic freedom, so the songs took on a life of their own".
