More from Love, Burns and the LP, It Should Have Been Tomorrow

Again, it’s great to see what an author has to say about their own work, get a little insight into their thought process. So we continue celebrating It Should Have Been Tomorrow (coming out the day AFTER tomorrow) by a few more great words from the Love, Burns songwriter himself, Phil Sutton:

Dear Claire was a song I wrote a few years back, recorded by my then group, The Soft City, that included Jason Corace and Dora Lubin, then Turner Stough and Kyle Forester guesting. Dora was the singer, Jason was (is) A Boy Named Thor. The song came out on a 7 inch EP, self-released. I think its a really good EP, that sort of got lost. We broke up when Jason, then Dora, moved away from New York. I always wanted to put Dear Claire on an LP, so we re-recorded the song with me on vocals, and a slightly different arrangement. We kept the looping organ though, the melody of which I sang to Kyle. This is one of two covers on the LP. The other is “Come In the Spring,’ a Pale Lights song. Covering myself. How indulgent!”
