What Kind Of Men - the new single - coming soon!
After two years without a release, John D. Lewis's as yet untitled new album is rapidly taking shape.
Work on the first single from the album - and the accompanying video is almost complete.
This is a no-holds barred protest song aimed firmly at Europe's rich and powerful political "leaders" who, says Lewis, "would rather make sure they get re-elected than do the right thing.".
When Morning Comes - John D. Lewis
Sometimes, a song needs to see more of the light. For deeply personal reasons, now is the time for When Morning Comes.
The song was recorded and originally released on "Love & Hope" in 2009.
Back in 2013, I was handed some vintage video of me and my family back in my early years. Friends pointed out other footage of North Northumberland and Thropton, where I grew up.
This, and some amazing footage I found online prompted me to make a video for the song.
You can read the full story behind the song and watch the video here.
John D. Lewis.
The bodywork is a little rusty, but I like to think the bumps and scrapes add character.
One or two really bad smashes left their scars and, once or twice, my family told me it was a complete write off.
There have even been occasions when "friends" tried to run it off the road deliberately.
The old motor runs a little rough these days and I'd be lying if I didn't admit there are more miles on the clock than I'd like.
Yet now, after all these years, it's still going. It needs experts to tune it up, and a lot of tender loving care but it still goes.
Most important, it's mine: it's the only one I've got, and I wouldn't trade it for the world, even if I could.
Welcome to my life ... and my music.
