Even The Stars favourite Dave Fidler releases his new single Taking Over today with a free entry launch show at Strange Brew in Chorlton. The live favourite from last year's debut album I'm Not Here comes backed with a previously unreleased track Life And Times and album track A Song For Nico recorded live at his Manchester album launch.
Last year, Dave told us the story of the song - "I wrote this when I got into blues slide stuff. I came up with the tune and I was chatting to my brother and he came up with the concept of “trees in the garden that come from seed” so it’s down as a co-write. It’s about getting old and the next generation taking over. He came up with a couple of lines that I based the rest on. I wrote that about a week before I recorded the album, I wasn’t sure about the lyrics at first, but they’ve settled in now."
