Following his previous single ‘People of No Concern’ (feat. Lettie & Madeleine), producer, arranger, mixer and engineer David Baron released another new song over the weekend (July 12, 2019) called ‘Bad Bad Love’ featuring singer Donna Lewis, famous for her 1996 worldwide Top 10 hit “I Love You Always Forever”.
While she hasn’t released a full album since 2015, she certainly outhustled her own music history on the search engines, recently collaborating with Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society for the atmospheric single ‘She Brought the Sun’ last month (June 2019). With the song ‘Bad Bad Love’, Lewis lends her voice to the vision and cinematic soundscapes of Baron, but was also more direct on how the song affected her.
Speaking of the track, Baron explains: “‘Bad Bad Love’ combines the angelic voice of Donna Lewis with a small string orchestra and analogue modular synthesizers. It is the mournful yearning of a mother who has been separated from her child. Achingly beautiful, heartbreaking, and appropriate for our times. The musical form is reminiscent of a canon, a repeating chord sequence of low strings that slowly blossom until taking us right back to the original question.”
Lewis posted the following from her Facebook page, “When David asked me if I wanted to write to his latest strings piece I said YES!!! as I’m a big fan of his work especially his cinematic compositions. This piece was so moving and emotional that I was inspired to write about the women fleeing violence in this world, wanting to protect their children, crossing the border and then having their families pulled apart.”
