John Butler‘s ‘Ocean’ has become a signature track, played time and time again for over a decade now. ‘Ocean’ was first recorded as part of Butler’s first album Searching For Heritage and sold on the streets of his native Freemantle, Australia, where he was busking. The track was then featured in Butler’s self-titled studio album released in 1998.
In the words of John Butler, “Ocean is a very interesting aspect of my life. It is part of my DNA. It conveys all things I can’t put into words. Life, loss, love, spirit. As I evolve so too does ‘Ocean’.
Now the guitarist and singer has re-recorded the 11-minute epic track at ‘The Compound’, his studio in Freemantle and he’s offering it as a free download. Listen to it now.
