I’m giving away my album for free

I know in the past I’ve been pretty outspoken about how important it is for people to support indie artists by paying for their music. I still love spending money on my favourite artists, because I really want them to be able to continue making music, and I genuinely like paying for things that are valuable to me.

But, when it comes to my own music, I just want anyone who likes/loves/is curious about my it to be able to listen to it freely. It’s more important to me to have listeners than buyers, because that’s why I make music in the first place – to connect with real people. So, if you’re a real person, please accept this free gift (if it appeals to you), and share with anyone you think would enjoy it.

Peace and love.

June Is Cold…

June is-2

Given that June has once again rolled around, I thought I would share this old video of my song, “Songs of June”. It was shot by good friends of ours in the back garden of our old farm cottage. Man, I miss that place!

If you like it, please share it!

SONGS OF JUNE
Music and lyrics by Mali Korsten.
Copyright 2015 PRS. All rights reserved.

Woke on the wrong side of bed
With songs of June running round my head
They tell me I’m crazy

Demons with voices sweet
Offer me fruit from the poisonous tree
They won’t resign till they can say “She’s mine”, but I won’t be deceived
No I won’t be deceived

And June is cold in this part of the world
Where I fumble toward the light
And maybe they won’t taunt me today
If I clothe myself in the night

Temptation tells me he’s
The one in the know, one who holds the key
But I know he’s lying

‘Cause shadows require the light
To draw the outlines we recognise
The lies would not be if the truth did not see some use for them here

And June is cold in this part of the world
Where I stumble toward the light
And maybe they won’t haunt me today
If I disguise myself in the night

I find it hard to reason
I get caught up in the haze
And if I talk to myself it’s not ’cause I’m mad
I’m just trying to remember the time has passed

When I heard the voice of love
Pouring like rain from the heavens above
And the dove did descend and He promised me then that He’d never leave

And June is cold in this part of the world
But I’ll press on anyway
And I won’t fear, for I know who lives here
So I’ll bathe in the light of day

It’s hard to compete with the sound of the surf, but if you wear headphones you should be able to hear my voice above the oceanic roar. If not, I’ve included the lyrics in the video description!
