“Green Goddess” is the fourth song to be lifted from Sea Power‘s Everything Was Forever album, following last year’s “Lakeland Echo”, “Folly” and “Two Fingers” singles.
Vocalist and guitarist Jan Scott Wilkinson said of the new song, “”Green Goddess” was written with [guitarist] Noble. He had the initial idea for the music which I helped arrange and add vocals to. It is a love song about everything green from the Lake District to the New Forest. The places I love to be which are quiet and restorative. It is also a love song for my wife whose favourite colour is green. A rumination on human and non-human muses. There are dark and complicated things going on but sometimes it is good to forget this and go to the places and where you are happy. A hope that the future doesn’t have to be at odds with the past.”
Everything Was Forever will be group’s first album since changing their name, and will follow 2017’s Let the Dancers Inherit the Party.
A press release states that the name change is a “modest gesture of separation from the wave of crass nationalism that has traversed our world recently”.
