SIMPSON∙CUTTING∙KERR ~ Dark Honey / Ruben STOP2591

STOP2591aWe are releasing a double ‘A’-sided limited edition 7″ vinyl single – Dark Honey / Ruben – in advance of the splendid new Simpson∙Cutting∙Kerr album Murmurs.

‘Dark Honey’ is Nancy Kerr’s reflection on the human influence on our fast-changing ecology, informed by a summer of bee swarms in her inner-city garden, and the story she heard of bees collecting the sweetness from discarded cola cans and subsequently producing the dark honey of the title.

‘Ruben’ is an exclusive non-album track, available only on this single.

A spirited and spiritual banjo-led reworking of the American folk standard ‘Reuben’s Train’ (other versions known as ‘500 Miles or ‘900 Miles’), it is the lament of a traveller riding the railroad, penniless, longing for a home far out of reach.
