It took Mick Terry a very long time to record and release his second album ‘Days Go By’. The record started to take early form just a year after his 2010 debut ‘The Grown Ups’ and a couple of songs – ‘Pop’s A Dirty Word’ and ‘Riverbend’ – appeared online in early versions around that time.
The final record, though, seemed to have a tricky birth. Real life got in the way. Having a Transatlantic producer and differing time zones didn’t help. Eventually making its way into the world about five years later than planned, ‘Days Go By’ was worth waiting for. Each one of its tracks resembled a classically retro pop nugget; a musical love letter to AM radio artists like Andrew Gold and 10cc.
It seems the world might not have to wait for anywhere near as long for a third installment of songs from the London based singer-songwriter. Mick has more than hinted that a new record is being worked on and should see release at some point in 2021.
In the meantime, he’s given Real Gone an exclusive preview of something new. Exclusively for “The Real Gone Sessions” and safe from home, here’s Mick Terry’s previously unheard ‘Big Sur’!
