Blosson Roy—the project of Terry Borden—is gearing up to release his new, three-song EP, Ana Left Spain +2, on September 24, but he’s revealing one of the project’s tracks, “No Other,” ahead of time.
Ana Left Spain +2 follows the release of Blosson Roy’s 2020 debut LP, Think Like Spring, expanding on his dreamy pop sound with a 2021 remix/remaster of the popular “Ana Left Spain” track from Think Like Spring and another all-new song, “Bed of Roses.”
Borden elaborates on the new track: “‘No Other’ was written in Austria near the border with Italy and Slovenia. I was visiting my wife Julia’s home, before we were married. I was in love with her, and the beauty of the place where she was born and raised. We were hiking in the mountains, taking long walks along pristine rivers surrounded by the Austrian Alps, and I was listening to Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison, and The Waterboys during this trip.
“I felt their music was a soundtrack to the beauty of this part of the world. There was a guitar in Julia’s family’s home. I wrote the chords and melody in a stream of consciousness, and the words came a bit later when I reflected on the time we spent there together, basking in the beauty of nature and new found love,” Borden says.
