‘Strong Words

‘I don’t subscribe to the Artist as God school of thought.’ And yet he’s pals with Bono. Composer/musician Craig Armstrong, who we’ve written about before, has launched a new website to promote his current album, As If To Nothing ($ US / UK), which is now on sale. We think it’s a damn spiffy batch of music, so we’re plugging it. If you’d like to take a look at some promotional materials for the album, then go here, where you’ll also find a stream of the re-version of ‘Stay (Faraway, So Close!)’ that we’ve blogged before, as well as a stream of the full video for ‘Wake Up In New York,’ the album’s current single (both the song and the video are quite beautiful indeed). And as always there’s a mailing address that promises the potential of free schtuff.
