about

Recorded in September 2014, the two singles 'Pale Jacket' and 'Lemonade Sea' (separate releases) saw Dan enter the studio with a full band for the first time. 'Pale Jacket' is a feel-good song about love, life and relishing the wake of the future. The song features Dan Aston's signature harmonica solos, velvet vocals and poetic lyrics that together paint the story behind his music.

lyrics

She's got a pale jacket she wears
When the sun is shining
She's got a smile that lets me fly for miles
And then I'm struck by lightning
High on sugar drops and wine, we're always laughing
Time runs away when she's by my side, and there's no denying

I've never wanted to drive for so long
My ride will rust before she falls
I haven't felt this alive in so long
My wheels will keep turning strong

Take my hand, feel the rays of the sun
This beautiful sun, of all that is and is yet to come

There's an old guitar beside my door
The strings need changing
But she's playing better than ever before
And all the songs we're singing
Spin around my head throughout the day, like lullabies
The colours and rhymes bring shelter from the rain, and there's no mistaking

I haven't felt this way for so long
One look in your eyes brings me home
You know what it means to be alone
Your love and affection drives me on

I know this feeling is as real as the lines on my hand
This love is as true as the sea to the sand
There's a candlelit stage where she dances when I'm alone at night
When the curtains fall I'm the first to take to the floor

Take my hand, feel the rays of the sun
This beautiful sun, of all that is and is yet to come

Take my hand, feel the rays of the sun
This beautiful sun, of all that is and is yet to come
