Catch Me If You Can
‘When I became a father, I became much more aware of life's cycle and intern, my own mortality.’ Says Faulkner. In his new single, ‘Catch me if you can’ Faulkner explores the theme of the afterlife by begging the question 'when I'm gone, will you take me by the hand? When I’m gone, will I reach the promised land?’
The single, which is perhaps the darkest lyrically that Faulkner has written to date, also takes a departure sonically from his traditional sound. ‘When I approach a new song, I always write with vocal harmonies in mind, however on this particular occasion I wanted the song to feature not just a few harmonies but a huge gospel choir.’ The Choir that is featured during the chorus is in stark contrast to the intimacy of Faulkner’s raspy voice and rough blues guitar in the verses. The Gospel Church sound of the Choir pairs perfectly with the theme of the afterlife and a higher power. ‘Catch Me If You Can’ is released on ‘Make My Day Records’.
