STYX drummer TODD SUCHERMAN released his highly anticipated debut solo album, LAST FLIGHT HOME, on May 2 (his 51st birthday) via Aqua Pulse Records. CDs, high-resolution audio WAV downloads, and limited-edition signed and numbered 180-gram vinyl LPs are available now on all digital outlets as well as his official website.
Today, he released the fifth and final video from the album for “Kindling” (edited by Eric Dorris), which can be seen on his official YouTube page. If you’d like to post the video on your site, feel free and please let me know so I can share a link with TODD and his team.
SUCHERMAN explains why he chose Elbow’s “Kindling” to be the sole cover song on the album: “Right around the same time J.K Harrison was trying to convince me to do my own record, my wife, Taylor (Taylor Mills spent 12 years in Brian Wilson’s band), and I happened to be listening to Elbow’s LITTLE FICTIONS record. She said randomly and in the moment, ‘You’d sound good on this one if you ever decide to record something.’ I adored ‘Kindling’ and ‘Starlings’ by Elbow, and I think those are two of the most impressionistically romantic songs I’ve heard in recent years. With my version of ‘Kindling,’ I wanted to add a bit of a bigger, heroic moment at the end musically, and the end section is a big differentiation between the two versions.”
