David Bronson Celebrates Release of 'Story' with 2 new videos and free downloads

‘If you like well-produced, catchy, decent guitar playing and solid vocals then you’ll like this.’ – Gold Flake Paint

After a number of years of writing, producing, and recording, David Bronson officially releases the first instalment of a 22-song cycle project, The Long Lost Story, in the UK. Story is the first album, out now, to be followed by The Long Lost later in the year. To celebrate the occasion, Bronson gives away two free downloads of tracks from the record, accompanied by beautifully intimate new videos.

Bronson on the tracks

"Easier is a very reflective kind of song, roughly narrating some of the story of the record, in a hopeful, if kind of wary way. It's a detached retelling of what had happened that was painful, as well as a kind of attempt at a self-prescribed 'remedy' on how to proceed forward.

Since the song is an extremely internal one, even moreso than the rest of the record, I wanted a very intimate feeling for the video, so I thought "what would be more intimate than shooting it by myself, at home?" So that's what I did. I also realized the other day that it's kind of a funny play on words - it was after all, from a technical standpoint, a much 'easier' video to make than some of the other ones. I like when things like that happen.”

Momentary has a chorus that to me is a universal message, a message that I acutely needed to hear when I wrote it. It was essentially me telling myself that things would get better, but also acknowledging that they’d likely worse again too, and that’s just how it is (and that that’s not necessarily a bad thing). On another level, it’s ultimately an acknowledgement of death, and as such is an implied admonition to really value and be supremely grateful for all of it – that it’s all part of it, and all beautiful and meaningful, both in spite of, and because of, its impermanence. It’s also a special song to me personally because it’s the one song on the two records that was co-written by my brother Jeremy (who’s also the drummer).

As far as the video is concerned – I’ve always had a deep love and appreciation for illustration, from a very young age being obsessed with comic books. So I wrote out a few rough, sort of allegorical outlines and began looking for illustrators. I literally came across David Sparshott by googling ‘Illustrator’. I was really drawn to his style, as I was looking for a somewhat particular line-drawn, monochromatic kind of thing. His pieces were cooler and more boldly idiosyncratic and technically beautiful than I had imagined. I’m thrilled with his interpretation.”

Ringo 2012 - the new album from Ringo Starr

Album release: Ringo Starr, Ringo 2012
Release date: 30 January 2012
Label: Hip-O/Ume
Listenhttp://www.ringostarr.com

Ultimately what's most impressive about Ringo Starr isn't what he's been, but rather who he is," wrote Rolling Stone rock critic David Wild. "The man's great heart and soul, his wit and wisdom." Ironically, the story of Ringo's evolution from former Beatle to successful solo artist is still best told from the beginning.

Ringo Starr's music, as a solo artist and as a Beatle, is permeated with his personality. His warmth and humor, and his exceptional musicianship have given us songs we all know and love, including With A Little Help From My Friends, Don't Pass Me By, Octopus' Garden, Photograph, It Don't Come Easy, Back Off Boogaloo, You're Sixteen (You're Beautiful And You're mine), Don't Go Where the Road Don't Go, The No No Song, and Never Without You.

Since beginning his career with The Beatles in the 1960s, Ringo Starr has been one of the world's brightest musical luminaries. He has enjoyed a successful and dynamic solo career as a singer, songwriter and drummer, an active musical collaborator, and as an actor. Drawing inspiration from classic blues, soul, country, honky-tonk and rock 'n' roll, Ringo continues to play an important role in modern music with his solo recording and touring.

Guest performers include: Joe Walsh, Benmont Tench, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Dave Stewart, Don Was, Van Dyke Parks and Edgar Winter.
