Lead Single – The Earth Will Spin Around
Reikko has a lyrical gift of describing the human experience in a way that feels like it’s coming out of the mouth of someone who really knows what they’re talking about. It’s a delicate, heartfelt and deeply personal record with songs that feel like they could be written about anyone.
Reikko explains that he was inspired to write these songs when he was feeling betrayed in his personal life and felt the need to look at things from a larger perspective. With this in mind, he set out to write about the hope that ‘lies just around the corner’ as well as focusing on science and planetary issues.
