(A Song for) Fall & Darkness
Fall 2016, Michel & Demet made a short, silent movie called 'à Honfleur', during their stay in Normandy, France. It's also the music video for Michel's new single '(A Song for) Fall & Darkness', released on Ascension Day, May 25th 2017.

A song about opposites; birth & death, happiness & sadness, beginnings & endings, saying goodbye & meeting again. The arrangement is also full of contrasts, using old instruments versus iPad-apps.
The lyrics are in English as well as in French, written by Michel, shortly after hearing the news of Leonard Cohen’s passing, november 2016. Leonard Cohen is one of Michel’s main influences and as a hommage he wrote a song inspired by ‘The Partisan’.

Elma Plaisier - the lead singer of the Dutch band Half Way Station - features as very special guest on lead vocals. The song is produced, recorded & mixed by Michel at Tempting Tunes Studios, Rotterdam, The Netherlands and mastered by JJ Golden of Golden Mastering, Ventura, CA.
