Melody and magic. 'The Ghost of Nick Drake' from Michael Rattray's forthcoming album release 'Human Life' sees the singer-songwriter push the envelope of his brand of blue pop. Melodic, melancholic and comic, there are nods to Belle and Sebastian in the lo-fi arrangement and confident simplicity of this well-crafted tune. A whisper of Black Eyed Dog makes this both haunting and lyrically tender". Available: Mon 2nd Sept. 2013.

lyrics
Got my troubled soul soothed on an autumn day
A peculiar stranger crossed my path today
He doesnt love no one it's tragic, he loves melody and magic

la di di da, la di da

I have been hanging out with the ghost of Nick Drake
we mutter and laugh out loud at all our mistakes
and as we watch misfortune take her last swipe
we're still singing, singing for our lives
La di di da, la di da

He whispers to me "I'm feeling down again"
Then sings me the sweetest tune from beginning to end

he doesnt love no one its tragic he loves melody and magic
la di di da, la di da

I have been hanging out with the ghost of Nick Drake
we mutter and laugh out loud at all our mistakes
and as we watch misfortune take her last swipe
we're still singing, singing for our lives
La di di da, la di da

Beautiful, simple and lush! Reminds me a bit of Van Dyke Parks.
