about

While I was writing this song, it had the working title of "Zero G", and for a while it was really just a short loop of music which I was jamming over. By the time it had finally came together into a finished piece of music, David Bowie had just died and I'd been listening to his final album "Blackstar" alot - those amazing songs were always on my mind, particularly "Lazarus". I recorded a rough demo of this song and with its spacey kind of feel I was imagining Major Tom floating eternally through space and thought that a nod in his direction with the title would be fitting, along with a line from Lazarus - "I'll be free, just like that bluebird"
