Èkó - Sunset


Recommended Posts

^ Interesting! My guess right now is gonna be a short 1-2 minute track that includes a big choir of voices. Sunset is supposed to be the "happier" side of the album or at least the more hopeful side.

 

If Jacob Collier is on this thing I bet it will be this big vocal harmonization piece leading into Cry Cry Cry

Definitely one of my favorites on the album. It reminds me a lot of the song Paul Simon - ‘The Coast’ and actually the full album ‘ Rhythm Of The Saints’. Or even ‘Graceland’, using the african references and biblical characters. If you like the song and don’t know Rhythm Of The Saints, check it out.

I think Chris said in the BBC Live Lounge in 2017 that Graceland is one of his favourite albums ! And that he listened to it while in Zimbabwe as a kid, if I remember correctly.

Oh cool, didn't know that! Great album.

Both those albums seem like a blueprint for Everyday Life.

Mygod this one is so sweet. Tiwa Savage's voice beautifully compliments the song.

Great lyrics too. The last verse kills you

 

Joseph rode in on a beam of light

Dreamed of his Queen by his side

There'll be a beautiful sunset

And you'll be a beautiful bride

 

:sob: :sob: :sob:

Very underrated. It was one of my fave tracks on my first few listens. Very Paul Simon and love the backing vocals. Sounds a lot like early Coldplay too. Could have sat comforably with I Bloom Blaum and See You Soon.

 

Of all the tracks on the album tho I definitely haven't been listening as much. I think part of it is the weird placement after Orphans, which puts me in a dancy indie pop sing-along mood but then diving into a gentle acoustic story piece feels jarring.
