One of my favorite songs is 'Another Time or Place'. When I wrote this song, I had another world in mind: Another dimension, in which that one love, that life, could perhaps exist.
The day we recorded 'Another Time or Place', I concluded with the line "...and dance with fireflies". At that moment, a storm originating all the way from Texas, was out over Nashville. It caused the power to go down in the studio, as well as outside. As I went out in to the warm evening, I noticed blinking fireflies everywhere. A magical sight. As I was admireing how the male firelies lit up, to signal their desire for the female fireflies, a friend texted me -she did not know, I just worked on that particular song-: "Lana, there are fireflies everywhere!". A goosebumps moment! As I was thinking about this later, I knew it! The title of my album is: Fireflies in Nashville.
The first single of the album is Love Being a 70's Child:
The second single of the album is Ball and Chain:
A new album?After my earlier albums 'Something About Lana' and 'Nashville', I thought: "Done! My bucket list just became shorter.". Until Alan Glass invited me to London to write together. Alan is Preston Glass' brother and they have worked with Aretha Franklin, Earth, Wind & Fire, Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston, George Benson, The Temptations, Kenny G and Deniece Williams ao.. I came to know Alan via the vocal demo's I record for some US artists.
