TROY REDFERN RELEASES “GHOSTS” AS FREE DOWNLOAD FROM UPCOMING ALBUM
‘THE FIRE COSMIC’

DOWNLOAD “GHOSTS” FROM www.troyredfern.com

Hailed as the King of British slide guitar, Troy Redfern, has today released a free download of a new song Ghosts taken from his upcoming album ‘The Fire Cosmic’ released August 6th. 

Ghosts opens with an atmospheric Appalachian style motif played on Troy’s trademark sound performed with heavily-worn 1929 National Triolian resonator guitar which sets the stylistic tone of his new studio album.

Against the backdrop of Darby Todd’s ‘train beat’ drum shuffle, Ghosts gradually builds with subtly-layered acoustic textures, as it builds it’s way towards a massive chorus. 

Dave Marks‘ understated “country feel” bassline underpins the verses, and creates a sonic wave in the solo section. Troy’s resonator guitar, surfs, ducks, weaves, and reaches it’s final climax before hitting the chorus in high gear.

“GHOSTS”
LYRICS BY TROY REDFERN

Clenchin’ the reins as she rides on the plain, the fire in her eyes,
Recalling the days, before the heartache and pain, now her soul has crystallized,
The wind and the rain on her face can’t wash away all those years she left behind,
Could never remain with a heart that’s bound in chains, oh you know that love is blind

She’s riding on, riding on through the pain
When love is gone only ghosts of memories remain

Could never erase, like the lines on her face, oh those scars, they never fade,
The greatest escape that she ever will make, under the stars, like a renegade

(guitar solo)

She’s riding on, riding on through the pain
When love is gone only ghosts of memories remain

Troy Redfern – …The Fire Cosmic!
