About “Midnight Train”

Created by Rubysailor 1 year ago

"Midnight Train", the first track on the album, is a mid-tempo number which samples of Toto's 1982 track "Africa". "Brighter Days", which features the talented and prolific Soweto Gospel Choir, was the first track to drop in the run-up to releasing the full album. It's an uplifting song both in its musicality and lyricism.
