Stumbled across this on my iPod this afternoon.
Somewhat ironically, as we embarked on our new life together, Hopes and Fears was the album of our honeymoon; simply for the reason that I’d just got my first iPod and I had virtually no music on it. It’s one of those rare albums with no weak tracks: Can’t Stop Now, Bend And Break, Bedshaped, This Is The Last Time, We Might As Well Be Strangers – the list goes on.
No matter when or where I hear it, each and every song takes me right back to the beach on Benguerua Island in Mozambique.
I’m there now. Right now. You should try it.
