Track Of The Day: Erland And The Carnival - 'Quiet Love'

Erland and The Carnival release their third album entitled 'Closing Time' on August 25. Following the break-up of The Verve, Simon Tong formed the band with Orcadian folk guitarist/singer Gawain Erland Cooper and drummer/engineer David Nock. The new LP was recorded at Damon Albarn's 13 studios in London, and this wonderful new track 'Quiet Love' features the legendary Paul Weller on guitar and backing vocals. It's a moody, haunting and elegant helping of string-flavoured melancholic beauty, topped with a warm, heartfelt vocal from Cooper. "Closing Time doesn’t mark the beginning of the end; rather it marks an end to permit a new beginning,” explains Erland. “When Summer dies it’s to let winter in, then spring opens it up again; it has to happen. It’s enjoyable when you accept that you have a limited time to make things happen to the best of your ability."
