Evolution : Lost In Berlin feat. Michelle Leonard
“Cities are a pretty communal inspiration in general and I mentioned to Michelle that I’d done ‘New York City’ on ‘In Between’ and felt that I was a bit uncomfortable with never having done anything based around my home city.
She didn’t miss a beat and said ‘leave that to me.’ She came back 3, or maybe 4 weeks later with this incredibly beautiful track that somehow really captures Berlin’s past/present essence. The lyrics are quite voyeuristic too.
She’s never told me exactly what they were about and of course like all songs, they’re open to interpretation. To me though ‘Lost In Berlin’ feels like it’s about a relationship that may or may not make it. Sometimes hopeful, sometimes melancholic and introspective but with this beautiful, slightly damaged edge to it.”
