Wishing Well – David Berkeley

Today's song of the day is 'Wishing Well' by David Berkeley complete with the dark brooding of winter, a nod to the Norse mythology and a sublime video.

‘Wishing Well’ is taken from the forthcoming David Berkeley record ‘Cardboard Boat’. More than just an album, this superbly crafted collection of songs accompanies a short novella of ten interwoven tales ‘The Free Brontosaurus’. Featuring the distinct signature vocals and songwriting talents of Berkeley, the music is more than enough to stand alone but the collision of art forms lends a whole new dimension.

Here in the video for ‘Wishing Well’ we can experience Berkeley’s musical narrative alongside the stunning visual piece containing over 900 watercolour paintings by Anne Beal, who also animated and directed the video.

‘Cardboard Boat’ is available in the UK on 19th February 2016.
