A.S. Fanning's third record, Mushroom Cloud, is set for release May 26th, 2023.
Dublin born singer-songwriter A.S. Fanning has released 'Pink Morning / Magic Light,' the second single from his forthcoming record Mushroom Cloud.
The project was produced by K&F Records/Proper Octopus Records. 'Pink Morning / Magic Light' is a ruminative account of a moment trapped in time, written by Fanning on golf course in Southern Sweden.
The track finds similar themes to the record's leading single 'Mushroom Cloud'– released last month– yet tackles them in an entirely disparate way. Where 'Mushroom Cloud' found paranoia and anxiety in isolation, 'Pink Morning / Magic Light' finds beauty and reflection.
Finger picking over sweeping strings, Fanning sings in haunting baritone, giving depth to the lyrical scene he paints.
"Out on this lonesome golf course where I find myself / As the night gives way to morning, the snow begins to melt / There are many things I wish for, or have lost / Everything I have, or have ever know, will melt away like frost," the artist croons before launching into the chorus.
"I think it's quite a meditative song," Fanning remarked. "There's some darkness in some of the lyrics but I see it as a song about switching off the negative and fearful thoughts and appreciating a moment of beauty."
Mushroom Cloud is Fanning's third– and professedly most vulnerable– record, following 2020's You Should Go Mad, and 2017's debut Second Life, which came after the 2013 break-up of Fanning's former band, The Last Tycoons.
Fanning currently resides in Berlin, where he continues to write music.
