John Cale – Night Crawling: New Song Of The Day

John Cale has released Night Crawling today. Any time John Cale releases new music, we here at 13th Floor sit up and listen!

John CaleNight Crawling finds Cale reminiscing about his time with David Bowie back in the 70s. Here’s what JC has to say:

“There was this period around mid-late ’70s when David and I would run into each other in NY. There was plenty of talk about getting some work done but of course we’d end up running the streets, sometimes until we couldn’t keep a John Calethought in our heads, let alone actually get a song together! One night we managed to meet up for a benefit concert where I taught him a viola part so we could perform together. When I wrote ‘Night Crawling,’ it was a reflective moment of particular times. That kind of NYC that held art in its grip, strong enough to keep it safe and dangerous enough to keep it interesting. I always figured we’d have another go at the two of us recording together, this time without the interference of being perpetually off our heads! The thing about creating music is the ability to divine a thought or feeling even when reality says it’s a logical impossibility.”
