Son of Caesar - new single 'Strange Heroes'
We haven't quite yet got to that stack of albums we want to review, but we have a plan and hope we can get through them all. We're certainly going to avoid dropping in too many singles ahead of album releases, and will try and concentrate on the full album instead, but that's sometimes difficult to resist - especially in the case of the recent 'Son of Caesar' single entitled 'Strange Heroes', released ahead of his planned album release in April.
So for those of you who don't know 'Son of Caesar', it is the musical project of Peter Mathiason, the Danish songwriter who released his debut album 'Winter Came and Went' back in 2013, and he's been working on the follow up for the last 4 years. The album is entitled 'Nothing Is What It Was', and you can now find 3 singles from that release on streaming services and Itunes - 'Strange Heroes' is the latest.
'Strange Heroes' is a lovely tribute to David Bowie, with an elegance to the songwriting, and the most beautifully arranged instrumental accompaniment, led by trumpet and strings. The vocals have a softness to them, and there's even a climactic and anthemic style chorus to arouse the emotions, it is just such a thoughtful and well written song
Take a listen to 'Strange Heroes' here:
Don't forget that the album 'Nothing Is What It Was' will be released on Friday April 13th.
