• Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    From the Mourning of the World is a unique compilation album brought to you by the Dark Mountain Project, the global network of artists, musicians and writers who are crafting new stories for a civilisation in trouble.

    Featuring: an exclusive alternate version of Caesar recorded specially for the album by BBC Radio 2’s Folk Singer of the Year 2011, Chris Wood; BBC Radio 2’s Folk Singer of the Year 2010 Jon Boden; celebrated artists such as Chris T-T and Bethia Beadman (whose track is a duet with REM’s Mike Mills); this is a beautiful compilation of the wild and uncivilised music associated with the Dark Mountain Project.

    Through our IndieGogo crowdfunding page we managed to raise just under £3000 of the £5000 we need to create this beautiful album on vinyl. If you order a copy you will receive the download immediately but the vinyl might be a few months behind. We have a number of fundraising gigs planned as well as selling copies through this bandcamp page so you should have your copy by the end of the summer.

    Thank you for supporting our first venture into creating an album!

My brother is worried
I’ll be so far from the sea for so long
My brother is worried
I’m going to get too far gone
But does he know he speaks in poetry?
Does he know he truly knows me?

So what can you tell him?
How will you ease his troubled mind?
So what can you tell him?
I feel the task is not mine
But you should know he speaks in poetry
You should know he truly knows me

When we were children
I wished a shooting star into the night
When we were children
I just wanted to make everything right
I think I’ll just tell him that you and I
We've learnt how to make the sun shine

I think he’ll understand
I’ll write some songs and sing them
My brother’s words will be in them
I think he’ll understand
How I can love a man
Like you
Like you
