I hope that all of you reading this are doing OK, whether you are self isolating, on the front line as a care worker, doctor or nurse, or just plain worried, trying to get through each day of this weird new life. We all have our ways of getting through hard times - music is a great way, as is humour and expression of love and empathy, both for yourself and others. One of my ways, of course, is making music, and when Mella sent me this amazing picture that was an out-take from when she sang Le Rêve de La Vie for the video, it inspired me to make a shortened remix with just her singing section, so I could us the is picture as the artwork.
The track will be released on streaming sites etc soon, but for now you can get a copy at Bandcamp - https://mldunn.bandcamp.com/track/le-r-ve-de-la-vie-single-version-feat-mella I have also made a new video for it, different to the longer version - that plays on the fact that Mella looks remarkably like a Pre-Raphelite Muse in the picture (think 'Ophelia' by Millais). I had no idea when Mella sang this a few months ago that in such a short time life really would become like a dream. Take care everyone, keep smiling. And keep washing those hands :-) Here is the video -
