That Lucky Old Sun Track-by-track XIV: Midnight’s Another’s Day

If anyone still doubted Brian Wilson could write a great new song in the 2000s, Midnight Another Day was evidence that Brian’s skill in creating music that digs into the deepest ineffable emotional states was still very much intact. This is certainly a song that can be mentioned in the same breaths as Warmth Of The Sun, ‘Til I Die and Caroline No as Brian again faces up to his darkest demons and the sustaining forces that led him back to the light.

The song was previewed on Brian’s website weeks before its live premiere at the Royal Festival Hall concerts in September 2007.  The live version left the audiences breathless and sometimes tearful as Brian reclaimed his premier songwriting territory.
