C’est l’un des temps forts de ce début d’année musicale 2014, même s’il est malheureusement fort probable que les musicos « généralistes » n’en auront rien à battre : le nouvel album de Linda Perhacs, lumineuse brindille post-Woodstockienne qui n’avait rien sorti depuis le mythique « Parallelograms » en 1971, promet d’être grandiose.

« The Soul of all Natural Things », qui sortira sur le label de Sufjan Stevens « Asthmatic Kitty », frappera nos oreilles en mars. Après le premier extrait « Freely »,  en voici un second, « River of God » :

Lyrics (Written by Linda Perhacs, Fernando Perdomo, and Chris Price):

River of God
River, river, river, river
River of God

River of god, River of Love
River of god, River of Love

River of god how you fill up the sky
River of god, you’re much greater than I
There’s a river of souls running fast by my door
There’s a river of souls going where who can know

There’s a river of souls streaming loud through the night
And the roar of the noise fills the sky with it’s might
And to me it’s a mess and to me makes no sense
And yet all that I hear is a voice deep within saying

All that I have
All that I am
I would give for a chance
To help them with their lives

All that I have
All that I am
I would give for a chance
To help them with their lives

River of God
River of Love

River of god how you fill up the sky
River of god you’re much greater than I

River of god there’s an eclipse of the sun
The darkness is rising we’re all on the run
Forgive me your failings forgive us our wailings
When love is not loved then the darkness will come
And when love is within ,all the light will return
Like a river of love , like a river of sun

All that I have
All that I am
I would give for a chance
To help them with their lives

When love is not loved then the darkness will come
When love is within, all the light will return
Like a river of love , Like a river of sun
Like a river of love , like a river of sun

Just to help them with their lives
