We usually don't get much in the realm of "downer" music here at XLR8R, so hopefully you'll appreciate the brief change of pace. This somber tune was produced by RJD2 for Ohio-born MC Copywrite, who penned the lyrics for "Forever and a Day." Copywrite wrote the song in remembrance of those who have passed on—specifically, his friend and musical partner Camu Tao and his father Peter James Nelson. It's a sentiment which meshes ideally with RJ's slow-grooving, tastefully mellow instrumental, and even the softly sung chorus from D.C. indie band Middle Distance Runner.
"Forever and a Day" will be released on Copywrite's forthcoming full-length, The Life and Times of Peter Nelson, in October.
