From the recording MY MUSEUM
9. Never Gonna Go Away – from 1997/1998 I think. Developed, sequenced and recorded entirely at Ben’s apartment in Park Slope. Though no doubt a bit dated in production elements (and perhaps even a bit ‘incomplete’ as a track to me), I really like what this tune represents – including a vocal loop that dear Theo Bleckmann and I did one night over drinks at his place, and Lauren Kinhan came by to add some vibey backgrounds with me. Admittedly, I think Seal’s music was a big influence on this tune, a song about someone so unhappy with who they really are, and the desperate measures they take to keep that darkness hidden.
