Next in the Song By Song series is Rain In May, the fifth track on the Seasons album. It is about loss, losing a dear one. You miss them, and sometimes would give anything just to hold them once again. A subject we all have to deal with, one time or another…
A large part of this song is built on a fairly simple acoustic guitar part, supported by cello. For me, the cello is a great instrument to add emotion to a song like this. I also used additional orchestrations, but most of that is kept low in the mix.
You will not be surprised to hear that most of the song is played without drums. There is a short solo in the second part of the song, where drums are added to fuel some extra energy. But I wanted this song to feel intimate and personal.
I hope I succeeded and that you like it as much as I do!
