It’s No ‘Illusion’ That You’ll Be ‘Falling’ For This Week’s New Music | ICYMI Monday

BT – ‘The Lost Art Of Longing’

“One of the things nearing extinction; is the art of longing. As in, wanting something you cannot immediately have. If anything positive is to come from the situation the world collectively finds itself in, it is my great hope — speed, instant gratification, and over-stimulation are swapped out for longing, imagination, and relational connection. For a child or teenager to sit thoughtfully and ponder what is to come, to hope for or envision something amazing, to dream of a place or a future — is becoming obsolete. Longing has been replaced with instant gratification. My hope is that this record reacquaints my audience with the lost art of longing. That they will take pause, get quiet, daydream, and connect to their own place of longing. Because that, I believe, is where the magic is.”
