Birds of the High Arctic

Album: Mutineers (2014)
  • Birds feature in the lyrics of several songs on Muntineers, including this track, "As the Crow Flies" and "Gulls." Gray told The Daily Telegraph that he is a bit of an amateur bird watcher. "I don't go online: 'There's a bluethroat in Walberswick, I'm off!' I only look at the ones that cross my path," he said. "Birds are very visible, very beautiful, they sing, they are of the air, they are something to contemplate, they have beguiled me ever since I was a child."
