Today, Tomas Barfod shares new track Happy featuring the vocals of Eddie Chacon (of Charles & Eddie). Listen to it above or on our Soundcloud / YouTube here.
On the song, Eddie wrote:
The lyrics to Happy came about differently than any song I have written before. One day while driving in Los Angeles with my wife we were talking about a person’s natural disposition. She labeled me an eternal optimist. I thought about that for a second before I replied that this world is hard on artists. In my 35 year music career starting in the late 70′s in San Francisco and leading up until now that I had seen so many of my great musician friends slip away due to aids, drugs, car accidents, suicide and even santaria but that I had decided I was gonna be happy. My wife was moved by this and insisted I make a song out of it.
I’ve attended many funerals in my life and I always think the same thing: Any day above ground is a good day.
