Single Review: “Winter” – The New Is Now

The New Starts Now – Winter

I bet this was written over the time when there was the cold snap that we had recently…. 

I am not a big fan of snow, but this is the kind of song you can listen to when it starts!

This is gorgeous, an acoustic number with strings, a bass keeping it simple with one or two notes in a bar, an electric piano and big drums. Oh there’s a tambourine in there too. This is set to a 6/8 time signature. 

The lyrics keep it simple…

The second verse is what caught my attention: 

“Well, I lost my way in the world tonight,

I’ll be better in the summer,

And everyone’s asking you feel alright?”

Very much a song to listen to with the winter blues and the day before blue Monday too. I pray the long hot summer days come soon. 

The New Starts Now is, I’m assuming Jonathan Smith – there’s not much information on line so I’m going by the name on the credits for the lyrics, his tagline which I love is *Stand for the Broken – Sing for the Voiceless* , he’s from Chicago, and I’m looking forward to hearing more from him.
