    Again we see Chris mine the wealth of his home movies involvin' his 2 boys, walkin' around Central Park NY on a cold but sunny day. Boys wear winter clothes. Breathe clouds up. Look rugged up. They visit a few John Lennon landmarks.

    Geoff also appears briefly doin' what he does. Ridin' a subway train lookin' slightly suspicious 😉

    Now Chris has said this started on piano in a minor key then bursts into a major key like the sun dramatically burstin' out on a cloudy day. Gee. Chris don't give away all the trade secrets . 😯

    Now. To my ears this is a song Chris Martin would've given his right arm to have written and sung. Close your eyes. In parts Braide sounds exactly like Martin. Earnest keenin' and yearnin' and all.

    In recent interview he mentions Let It Be as an influence. Sure. Beatles influence most songwriters. To me? It's a dead set Coldplay steal. But. He knows what he's doin'. Britains's most streamed co-songwriter with Sia.

    No surprise it opens the album even though it starts in a minor key and has a Barney poetry intro.

    If there was any justice in this world, this song would be on every radio station in the world this mornin', encouragin' the tired and huddled masses. But. As we know. There is no justice in this world.

    "It’s tempting to say that we think it’s our best album yet." Downes Braide Association release Celestial Songs

    Melodic prog duo Downes Braide Association, the band featuring Yes keyboard player Geoff Downes and singer and producer Chris Braide, release their fifth studio album, Celestial Songs, through Spirit Of Unicorn Records today, September 8.

    “It took a few years to make this new DBA album, through the various trials and tribulations of life, and Geoff and I are excited to finally share it with the world," exclaims Braide. "It’s tempting to say that we think it’s our best album yet, but we will let the listener decide. Hope you enjoy the journey.”
    "I am super excited about the release of our forthcoming new album,” adds Downes. “Chris and I worked really hard to create something that was special to both of us, and the result – Celestial Songs. We are certain that if you liked our previous albums, then you are going to love this one. Please sit back, listen and enjoy the DBA journey. All best, Geoff."

    At the same time the duo have shared a video for their brand new single Look What You Do, the opening track from Celestial Songs.

    "It starts with a lovely minor key piano piece, written by Geoff and has a mournful, yearning guitar part," Braide explains of the new single. "It then opens up into the major key of the song which is like the dawn after the darkness.

    “I started the idea in Los Angeles at the piano and just sang a phonetic kind of lyric on the mic, one take. I thought I’d go back and re-sing it with a more structured lyric, but I just loved the emotion of the (original) vocal. Plus, the lyric ‘Give me time, that’s all I want ‘cause nobody knows’ seems to mean so much to me. I couldn’t better it really. It says what I wanted to say without me even realising it. It’s quite Beatley, I suppose. The second verse has those big Abbey Road-type strings blocking out the chords. I wanted to write a Something or a Let It Be - no small ambition then! The song returns to Geoff’s piano motive, but this time it’s major. It’s like the sun has risen and we are looking back at a life with love."

    If it were Coldplay it would have been minus the intro and outro (which I like a lot) and just the middle on endless repeat going up and down in volume.

    I'm hoping Geoff also likes the intro/outro enough to recycle it on a future Yes album!

      One quick listen.
      Barney? Sounding a little older, perhaps a little weaker with this frontal narration. Perhaps a change in the recording technique, or with the settings?

      Love the choice of sounds. Some old time feel with the bit off-tuned keyboards.

      Did Chris actually steal some of my lyrics I have been working on? Only Chris knows. ;-)

      Is that Marc Almond doing backing vocals? Really can’t tell.

      Bit odd seeing Geoff with that log hair, back on te day. As someone recently said he has lost some weight, but that newer haircut he is sporting now suits him, makes him handsome, again.

      Best part of the song was worth waiting for. The end with Geoff playing, the keyboard orchestrations he wrote, played and is infamous for, the tempo and those sound choices just do it for this song.

      All for a different sound/sounds and tempo for this song, contributing to this album..

          Has this album made available on YouTube (I don't see it) or somewhere like Spotify or Amazon Music? I'd like to give it a listen, I've not really gotten into previous DBA, but I want to give it a chance.

            Should be up on world wide youtube. May have to scroll down to find it. The videos haven't had many views. Spotify may not have it. My son will be takin' care of downloadin' files to my phone.

            Would recommend this to anyone as a startin' point and then go backwards. It's all good.

            The zenith of their career is still the 18 minute long Skyscraper Souls song. But. This is their most cohesive album of 11 strong songs.

              To answer my own question, it's on Amazon Music and I'm listening to it now.

                Still don't see it on YouTube, searched for it by title and on the InsideOut channel.

                But I like what I hear so far, the fifth song is now playing. 🎵

                    There is a moment later on. Perhaps in Beyond the Stars when Barney says "the daily reportage of oblivion" , the way he rolls out the pronunciation of "reportage" cracked me up. You have to hear it. He sounds like a lovable larrikin.

                    No. Almond only duets on Darker Side of Fame, AFAIK.

                    The vocals are multi-tracked Braide. He really understands how to produce his own voice. It's a masterclass of pop vocalization.

                    My question. What is he singin' in On the Run?

                    Thought it was "Ha-pi-ness" but can't be that.

                    Would love to know if there is a lyric sheet with the physical release.
