71 anni, leggenda vivente, John Cale annuncia il nuovo singolo ‘All Summer Long’ (“it’s actually a sun-kissed but sprawling psych jam”). L’ex-icona dei Velvet Underground lo rende disponibile su iTunes con l’aggiunta di ‘Sandman (Flying Dutchman)’ preso dall’ultimo album ‘Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood’ uscito nell’ottobre del 2012 via Double Six. Cale racconta il nuovo brano: “When writing for Shifty Adventures I noticed an apparent theme of claustrophobic darkness and so of course, I felt at home in that place. There were though a handful of songs unfinished. One in particular was me dreaming about a breeze, space and light. Recalling those early days in my sticky, sweltering NYC flat – how I’d heard summer from the West Coast – thinking how the California landscape informed a vibe that churned out Brian Wilson, Herb Alpert and that strange sexy breeze in your ears. Since the album was predominantly located in the darker, eerie swamps of ‘Nookie Wood’ , it seemed like the wrong place to put this song, but now, just feels right to let it out…”.
