Three years ago I wrote and recorded this song – inspired by the announcement that Sir Ben Ainslie, with the backing of INEOS and the Royal Yacht Squadron, would be mounting a challenge for the 36th America’s Cup, to be held in Auckland in early 2021.
Time has flown by and tomorrow (15th January 2021), Sir Ben and Team Ineos UK will line up for their first race in the Prada Cup, in an attempt to do what no British sailing team has done in the 170 year history of the cup – win back a trophy that was surrendered at its inception in 1851.
If you like it turn it up and sing it across the world – go Team Ineos UK
I have a new single coming out in a few weeks’ time. Like so many artists and creators, I am desperate to share my new work and yet I struggle hugely with self promotion. My greatest pleasure is in making the music, but I’d be lying if I said don’t have a naive dream that this new work might collide with someone or something – causing an almost imperceptible shudder – but a shudder nonetheless.
Would anyone like to give it a listen and write a few words in advance of its release?
The Times in Your Life (feat. Nathan Haines) is available from 1st Feb. 2021
