‘Finally the summer’s upon us…..’ So begins the first song to be released from my forthcoming 22nd record Bittersweet Crimson. The song, The Beauty of Everyday Things, was written in 2019, during a glorious summer in North West Clare. I wanted to celebrate the simplicity of life moving outdoors. Coming together and having a laugh doing ordinary things. This feels even more perfect now, in 2020. Summer is here. Life is short. Lets get out there. And make the most of summer. On July 20th, Bittersweet Crimson will be available to buy ONLY from www.lukabloom.com - download or CD. Today, the first song "The Beauty of Everyday Things" is available to listen here: The Beauty of Everyday Things - from Bittersweet Crimson by Luka Bloom
