In April 2017, Thunder decided to record an alternative version of Love Walked In, having been asked to do it hundreds of times over the years, but never felt good about the concept until then.
Rather than just record a quiet acoustic version, They reimagined the song, basing it around the piano instead of the guitar, and added a recorder (like you do). This “destroy & rebuild - with less” experience made us wonder if we could repeat it with our other songs.
The band decided to convene a short demo session and everybody came in with a couple of song suggestions. The goal was to try the songs in any style they thought might work, and only record the ones we thought were interesting.
Thunder set therselves 3 rules: - work fast, don’t aim for perfection, and make it different to the original. Some songs fell together spontaneously and some took a series of strange left turns before ending up in a place that no predicted.
Now you know the story, and Thunder invite you to “Please Remain Seated”, and immerse yourself in a strange journey into their own music.
