Announced: Taken By Trees – Another Year cover album + single ‘Say You Don’t Mind’

After a four year pause, Victoria Bergsman’s Taken By Trees returns with a mini album of Colin Blunstone covers entitled Another Year, which will be released on December 9th. ‘Say You Don’t Mind’ is the first track from the mini album, , a song written and originally recorded by The Moody Blues’ Denny Laine in 1967, which was then a solo hit for Colin Blunstone in 1972. 

This mini album also marks the 50th anniversary of The Zombies frontman Colin Blunstone’s debut solo album, One Year, an underrated classic —but it also became an emotional salute to one of Bergsman’s favourite singers.

What emerges is a set of cover songs that are recognisable but entirely Bergsman’s own. The characteristic distance of her voice —just as distinctive as Blunstone’s but in a completely different way —sets off his romantic, oftentimes wistful songwriting, from 1972 hit single ‘Say You Don’t Mind’ to the farewell energy of Caroline Goodbye, a definitive break-up track about the end of a relationship with an actress girlfriend.
