About truth, life and innocence.
About “Lost Songs”:
I was wandering through the youniverse last night and noticed a little prison. In this prison there were many songs locked in the cages. They always wanted to fly out to the world but guards were sleeping and did not even hear their sounds….The songs had been there for many years, some even ten years and it seemed so unfair…
Yet, I was the one who had the key and by far out of the two functions of a key, I like the unlocking part. Fly, my rough songbirds!
Here they are wrapped in red. Raw secret songs straight out of my wild teenage heart, The “Lost Songs”.

It was at the beginning of this January when I was recording the soundtrack for “Lead Belly” in the studio. At 3am I took a tea break but as my friends’ guitars were just standing there next to me I grabbed one of them and 10 minutes later I had that song written on a tissue.
Hell no I know from which portal from the future it came from but I feel it was probably meant to be like some kind of a message to the world through this dark time, so I decided that I should sing it out last evening as my #NOWLIVE (a cool window-song movement) song!
-But every time this predictive-song-thing happens it gives me a bit of an eerie feeling.
Star kid wait, wait til the sun goes down
Wave goodbye to yesterday,
And get yourself together –
Nights shape us
TO HELP THE WORLD CHANGE US…
TOWARDS THE MORE
PASSIONATE, CARING AND CREATIVE HUMAN BEINGS
The doors to my yesterdays’s live trip will be open from NOW til MIDNIGHT!
Hello, World from the most awesome quarantine-space one can desire. To be locked inside a creative workshop in NYC with pianos, colorful lights and your best friend sounds more like a dream than reality. Thanks Silvermuse !I’ll be sharing SO much with you all during the following weeks, stay tuned!
I’d like to start with this one here, let me know your thoughts!
I still can’t get over the videos of thousands of quarantined Italians playing music on their balconies. It’s beautiful! Yet, this is so much more than just the only uplifting news on TV – it is a clear message that keeping creativity alive is crucial in situations like this. The whole story can easily go so wrong if people get bitter in their homes.
Today is one of the moments in history when the job of an artist proves to be so much more than just being an entertainer: Our job is to show people how one can keep filling his life with wonderful experiences without always needing the outside world (just give me an instrument and some food and I’ll be very happy for weeks)
The best we can do as artists is find the most magical way to share our passions and stories with people around us and inspire them – until they start becoming us. That’s what the Italians did by playing music and dancing from their hearts – not online, not behind closed doors – but on their balconies until more and more people joined and the whole thing became a bigger inspiration for the world.
We artists know that even if the systems should fall or all the money in the world end, life will still go on because the best thing on this planet is free: a powerful pleasant feeling of magic (that among many others music, creation, meaningful connections can give us)
Now it is our chance to show people magic and make the crowds ask an important question:
“If a thing can never fulfill me the way art does, why have I for all my life spent so much money on things but not on art ?”
The current environmental situation proves that our world cannot sustainably carry the heavy weight of an economic system dependent on manufacturing things. Could this be the official start of an era when untouchable goods become the foundation for the new economic system?
For me the job of an artist is very similar to a job of a gardener who has to water the flowers that are pushing through the rumbling ground in spring…and the spring is now.And if you are given the ability to create – Do it , and share with others!
The journey for the butterfly to fly here has been long but here she/he is for you to have, my dear one!
There are millions of layers and meanings for me, for the director Ian and millions for you. Post them here, share. I’m happy to answer them all in the vlog during the following days:)
I was in England last week, lit the Christmas lights, got poured over by rain and stardust and came back with a myth for you – the myth that mysteriously found its way to Ian (the magician behind Butterfly film) the same time I sent him the song.
There are so many symbols and hidden meanings behind the film(it’s out 13th December) and the myth is one of them – hear it.
Each night I dream of home ⭐️
Share ourselves in our best and in our worst – that’s what we, songwriters, do
And even if it is sometimes not the most beautiful version of us
And even if it is sometimes not the happiest version of us
it is the most honest version of us we can ever be
And in the end, that’s the only thing that matters
“Butterfly” will be out on December 13. I cannot wait to share. You can follow its journey on http://thebutterflyfilm.com
