We’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of Natten, the new album from Bremer/McCoy, since they unleashed its title track. Now the Copenhagen based duo of pianist Morten McCoy and bassist Jonathan Bremer are enticing us further with a new bewitching single called ‘Gratitude’. Speaking about the track, McCoy explains:
“I wrote the main melody for the chorus of “Gratitude” one late evening after a session in the studio. I was just sitting and vibing, playing, reflecting on the day and then suddenly this melody just came to me out of nowhere, actually together with the baseline. And it came together with some simple words. I was singing in my head og jeg takker, which is basically “and I give thanks for that. That moment of time, that was just everything, the feeling of being in the universe, where there’s this loving energy, just very present, and the feeling of being humble and grateful for being able to sustain myself by doing what I love, and the feeling of being grateful to have such a nice family, friends around me. I was just very grateful and humbled by simply being in that moment of time.”
The track comes with an accompanying video directed by Paul Diddy and you can delight yourself with it below.
Natten is out on October 29th through Luaka Bop.
