Performed live at the The World Is Everything tour in 2007, starting in Zagreb Croatia.
Suddenly on September 22nd 2017, this track appeared on David’s (new) account on SoundCloud (https://soundcloud.com/user-516495290/beautiful-country-rough-mix). One day later, it was removed. Beautiful track by David Sylvian featuring Joan Wasser, Parker Kindred, and Fred Cash.
The track includes the poem ‘And This I Dreamt, And This I Dream’ by Arseny Tarkovsky from the bundle ‘Life, Life’. David Sylvian’s spoken word vocal was originally recorded ahead of Ryuichi’s appearance in the ‘Concert for Japan’. Another recording was used at that concert, so this reading appears here for the first time.
David Sylvian's long form composition is a unique collaboration with American Pulitzer Prize winning poet Franz Wright, featuring contributions from Christian Fennesz and John Tilbury.
