Bernard Fanning – Departures

I’ve always had a spiritual connection with Bernard’s music and that is why I posted the song “Wish You Well’ as it so poignantly captured my thoughts and feelings this morning. Later today, Bernard shared the story of his new song and LP, “Departures” in which he stated, “”My Dad died at the beginning of 2011 which coincided with the biggest floods Brisbane has seen. This was something that loomed pretty large for me over the whole writing period of ‘Departures’ and I suppose a song like this was bound to come out. The lyric is talking about the place in Brisbane where I grew up. Toowong, a near city suburb that my Dad also spent his childhood in and ended up being buried in, along with my older brother, who I now happen to be older than” God bless those we have lost and those who have lost, we wish them well and safe travels to the worlds beyond.
