Hidden Gold goes on sale tomorrow. We’re actually at that point. The release party is all set, we have rehearsed. Time to drop the last song that I promised.
About five seconds after I finished writing “Tam Lin of the Elves” (actually, probably before I finished writing it), I knew whose voice I wanted for the Faerie Queen. There was really never any question who was my first choice, a voice that could hold beauty and chilling menace in perfect balance. And when I asked her, she didn’t hesitate. Getting to record her vocals in my basement was one of the highlights of the process of making the album. It was kind of a one-hour master class in studio performance.
It is with great delight that I share this song, with Heather Dale’s vocals on it.
