John Holden releases Flying Train music video


British multi-instrumentalist John Holden has released a video for his new instrumental track flying trainwhich you can watch below.

It’s from Holden’s upcoming album. Kintsugi which will be released on September 30.

“I came across vintage 1902 images of The Flying Train that had been restored and colorized,” Holden explains. “It had an eerie tranquility and was both nostalgic and futuristic at the same time. I thought it would be fun to create a soundscape that evokes the sounds and feelings of traveling on the monorail.”

The new Kintsugi album features an array of guest slots such as Peter Jones, That Joe Payne, Sally Minnear, Dave Bainbridge, Henry Rogers, Vikram Shankar, Jean Pageu and more…

“Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by repairing broken areas with gold,” Holden explains. “As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of an object’s history. , not only is there no attempt to hide the damage, but the repair is literally illuminated.

“Events in our lives shape who we are. Kintsugi teaches us that when we think we are broken, we can pick up the pieces and with help, put them back together sometimes becoming stronger as a result. We can learn to embrace blemishes and with time and healing, be spiritually repaired.”

Kintsugi will be available on CD, vinyl and download. Pre-orders begin Monday, September 5 on Holden’s website. You can see the new album cover and track list below.
