Of all the things that ANT could tell us about the new album he was writing, the first was that every song mentions some kind of bird. At the moment, I didn’t think much of it…as there where many other things to think about. Then the album started with “Kisses On A Plate," and the first verse said: “I’ll pick all the apples from the tree till I find the one good enough for you." Suddenly, trying to remember the last time I happened to pull an apple from a tree, it seems strange, right? Bring a hand to the branches, rustling the leaves, picking an apple mature enough, lying on the grass in the sun, taking a bite. Imagine this scene as you start the record. Try to remember how clear the sky was when you had all the serenity to keep watching it. The color, the light, the wind blowing. The sky was full of bird-song. These swirling, sung images convey the tranquility of such a sky. Calm, serene, and full of bird-song. The clear sound of the ballads of ANT makes this ideal come alive. The theme of the album was there before me, simple, requiring me only to listen. Songs of love for a clear sky.
