onetruthtown

After Worn Out Dreams Forestfield wanted to make a concept album. ”This record is a bit more acoustic than the previous two. I wanted to write about the truth, the man’s personal truth. This is the 21st century and the world has become smaller than ever and you have millions of truths around you all the time. Yes, mostly it’s all good but sometimes it may get too tough to handle all of them at once. Especially if you plan to become a dictator.

Anyway, I wanted to make a record floating feeling. Carl Perkins’ Dance Album from 1958 is one of my all time favorites. But I think this record isn’t my dance album, it’s rather my easy chair album. As a bonus material there’s a music video of Small Town Hero.
