Looking forward to celebrating 10 years of my Bird Head Son album at the spot where it all started – New Morning (Officiel), on May 16. Bird Head Son was my first album with Heavenly Sweetness, we recorded 18 songs in two days, most were first takes, with only a few horn overdubs. It was produced by @Antoine Rajon and was a real breakthrough for us in France and Europe. I give love
