My Album of the Year Alien Skin with Deity
A Blue Sky at the Edge of the World is my most ambitious album yet and one I've been waiting to produce for so many years without really being cognizant of it.
I have added another human to the machines and this breath of new life is self evident. Inviting Deity (Los Angeles) to the album is an exciting expansion of the Alien Skin musical vocabulary. Her voice breathes vibrant colour & warmth into the new songs, songs which I feel are perhaps the most conceptually refined that I have done.

'The One with the Strangest of Eyes' is a desperate fantasy of fan-love. My obsession with lonely, sea battered lighthouses finds expression on 'Baltic Sea'. The song 'Eloise Woods' was inspired by a natural burial park I discovered in Texas. 'She's Ephemeral' is perhaps the closest hint of my 80s history. These are just some of the eleven songs that inhabit the album. All tracks take full advantage of our blended vocals backed by a floating platform of synthesizers. Some songs are simple and direct as they need to be, some more layered and textured but to date this entire body of work is my proudest Alien Skin moment.
