New Release ~ I Want To Know (What You Told The Sun)

The song 
You are
The light
Your eyes
The wind 
Your hair
Your soft
White thighs

I want to know what you told the sun
Everyone knows except me

Enclose me now
Your dark perfume
Your lips
Your skin
Your silent rooms

I want to know what you told the sun
Everyone know except me

Mute before your radiance
The incandescent storm
I want so much to hold you
To take you in my arms
You know you drive me crazy
It comes as no surprise
Tell me that you love me
I see it in your eyes

The song
Your light
So soft
So cruel
The ocean laughs
At this old fool

I want to know what you told the sun
Everyone know except me

{video} Knox Bronson Performs Quicksand by David Bowie

This an acoustic version of David Bowie’s masterpiece, “Quicksand,” from his 1971 album, “Hunky Dory.” The inspiration for the video was Heinrich Boll’s 1963 novel, “The Clown.” The novel follows, in a series of flashbacks and ruminations, the downfall of the protagonist, Hans Schnier, once an A-list entertainer who toured Europe and performed at the finest concert hall and stayed in the best hotels. He has lost the only woman he ever loved to his stubborn refusal to sign an agreement to raise their future children in the Catholic faith. Additionally, his alcoholism has progressed to the realm of hopeless. The last scene shows him performing on the sidewalk outside a train station, his make-up smeared and cracked, with tears streaming down his face. Quite a book, beautifully written, and I highly recommend it.

The video was directed by Nero Nava, who took my rough concept, which came to me as I was falling asleep one night, and made it into something so much better. I also wish to thank Sonyia Jordan, Maia Panos, Gita, Will Hughs, and Atticus Wolf for being in the movie, and thank Gita, once again, for doing such great makeup on everybody.

Had an album release party today at the lovely home of Maia Panos, a wonderful gathering of friends. The album came out on Friday. We premiered the video, the first one for the album, at the party today. It is now live on YouTube, etc.
