Lonely Robot, the project masterminded by producer, guitarist and singer/songwriter John Mitchell (Kino, Frost*, Arena, It Bites), is set to release its fourth album Feelings Are Good in twelve days a fresh start following the conclusion of the The Astronaut Trilog. The newest You Tube track from Lonely Robot is Spiders.
John Mitchell has the following to say about this song: «Spiders is a song about a woman, nay wolf in sheep’s clothing, who chose a path of greed and wretchedness and exploited her position of trust at a time of weakness when she COULD have done the exact opposite. Long since gone but never forgotten for all the wrong reasons».
John Mitchell comments: «Feelings Are Good is a bit of a departure from the first three Lonely Robot albums or The Astronaut Trilogy as it has now lovingly become known. On Feelings Are Good, I wanted to explore more personal themes and the songs are very much about individual experiences and narratives that I believe had been the cornerstones, good and bad, to my life. The long tall and short of it is that we’re back on planet Earth, and I have a personal lyrical axe to grind!».
The artwork is once again by Paul Tippett / Vitamin P (Black Star Riders, Frost*), and John Mitchell says of the cover: «The artwork is meant to be a little disturbing. The closed eyes and taped over mouth are supposed to represent how people are very guarded with their emotions and what better way of emoting them than through the windows to the soul and the smile?». The track Life Is A Sane Wave,
