Endless Diamond

Album: Space Age Blues (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Devon Allman was going for something that sounded "hip and kind of mysterious" on this track. He told us: "'Endless Diamond' talks about people through humanity's history reaching their potential. It was almost from a higher life form's perspective, saying that humans are the endless diamond, like we are unlimited potential, our place in the universe is unlimited potential. That's pretty much the message of the tune."
  • This is one of the few songs that Allman wrote and recorded with his Telecaster guitar. He typically uses a Les Paul.
  • Allman says that this song is a musical mashup of his influences, including The Cure, Iron Maiden, and various R&B acts. He released the song on the second album he did with his band Honeytribe, Space Age Blues.
