Latvian recording artist Chris Noah releases a deluxe version of the EP ‘Distance’ which came out on the 20th March. Alongside the original songs from the EP, the deluxe version includes recently released single ‘This Is The Night’, its live acoustic version as well as a stripped-down version of a fan favourite ‘River‘.
“‘This Is The Night’ was recorded after the release of EP ‘Distance’ and even during the writing process, I felt that it would fit very well with the other songs in the EP. It’s not only strong as a single, but it also serves as a great addition to EP ‘Distance’ and gives the necessary contrast between the songs,” says Chris.
‘This Is The Night‘ was released on 23rd October and came out with a music video.
Regarding the inclusion of the acoustic tracks in the EP, Chris comments: “I write most of my songs on my acoustic guitar and only during the production process, by adding various instruments and other bits and bobs, the characteristics of the recording are shaped. It’s great to have big production and it’s always fun to do that, but sometimes it’s worth returning to the basics which for me is my voice and guitar. Doing a live recording is always special as there’s room for natural noises and you also seem more vulnerable as a musician since there’s less editing.
I think it might reveal a new side of me to people who follow my music. The stripped-down version of ‘River’, which is included in the EP, has become a fan favourite at gigs where I don’t play with a full band, and this version gives a rawer feeling to the story behind the song.”
