Prisoner Of Love

STEPHEN CUMMINGS
‘THE WIND BLEW HARD’
(taken from Prisoner Of Love album out 22 February 2019 through Bloodlines)

Stephen Cummings has released the new single ‘The Wind Blew Hard’, taken from his forthcoming album Prisoner Of Love, which is Stephen’s 20th solo album, and his first new album in five years.

To quote Billy Miller (The Ferrets), the producer of Prisoner Of Love;

Stephen is one of Australia’s very best singer-songwriters. Everybody knows this. As someone who has spent at least a thousand hours with him – recording, rehearsing, performing, gossiping, driving – I probably know him as well as most of his colleagues. Or friends. Stephen is to me that most precious type of person: always generous, thought-provoking and entertaining.

Stephen is a songwriter who knows that less is more. Prisoner Of Love is tight and concise at just 10 tracks, although it’s loaded with wry observations on life, love and pain. And yet he tries in songs to never evoke the same feeling twice.

On the lead single ‘The Wind Blew Hard’, Stephen sings so beautifully with minimal accompaniment:

“I could feel the ground down below
A ringing quiet that wouldn’t let go
And it felt wonderful, scampering above the serenity
Time has no meaning up here to me
I’m just learning how to fly
The wind blew hard and my heart did ache
The wind blew hard and I made my escape”

The release of Prisoner Of Love will be followed shortly after by the release of a strictly limited edition 50 track Anthology, called A Life Is A Life.

Stephen is touring through April, to celebrate the release of Prisoner Of Love and his incredible career Anthology.
