Thea Gilmore - Angels In The Abattoir Update (March 2010)

The end of March already? Another great song from Thea that was destined for Album No. 11 (currently untitled) called The Difference. Thea describes the song as 'a gentle musing on the passage of relationships in life'.

The Difference, recorded on the first day of making the new album, is a brilliant blend of Thea's magical voice and wonderful piano that becomes more prominent as the drama and emotion unfolds. If this song 'didn't quite fit in with all the other songs' for album 11, I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing. An album of slow reflective piano ballads would probably be too much to ask so one or two of these gems cast aside to wind their way to us Angels is a privilege indeed.
