This is Larry’s first collaboration with Italian producer, Matteo Galesi. Hailing from Northern Italy, the huge skies and deep lakes of the region transfer sonically into a wide and rich tapestry of sound.

The strings are contributed by multi-instrumentalist Joao Silva from Portugal, who is one half of the band Still Life. The video on YouTube is by London film-maker, Rob Thom.

Whisper The World Away is about moving into mature adulthood and contentment - welcoming responsibility, family life - and assured love. Being simultaneously apprehensive and excited by that.

Recorded in lockdown in the Winter and Spring of 2021, in London and Barcelona.

In the last hour before the daylight
In your sleep I follow you,
Stepping lightly on untrod pastures
Where the ages weep for the morrow’s dew -

Holding close into day
Keeping secrets at bay -
Alibis, other lies,
Whisper the world away

Evening rushes through King’s Cross station,
Stories etched in marbled eyes,
Or searing wisdom on unturned pages
Where angels sweep in with lullabies -

Holding close into day
Keeping secrets at bay
Alibis, other lies,
Whisper the world away

Snorkel vision on summer beaches,
Gales of laughter from unblinking eyes,
Lead me through all our futures
Every nightfall, each sunrise -

Holding close every day
Keeping secrets at bay
Alibis, other lies,
Whisper the world away


released June 11, 2021
Produced, arranged and mixed by Matteo Galesi; played by Joao Silva (strings), Matteo Galesi and Larry Mindel.
