Everything Changes

Album: Everything Changes (2011)
  • Everything Changes is English singer-songwriter Julian Lennon's sixth studio album and his first since 1998's Photograph Smile. In between his two releases Lennon concentrated on business pursuits and filmmaking, but eventually he writing songs again. He explained: "Obviously, if you sit down and play around for a bit, you're going to come up with ideas. One thing led to another and pretty soon I had about 30 ideas, so I invited some friends to come over and flesh them out into songs."
  • In our Julian Lennon interview, he explained the meaning behind this song: "Along with everybody else, I have been down those dark tunnels where you just don't think things are going to change or get better. But inevitably they do, for the most part. Sadly, not for everybody. But to lose sight and to lose hope of that would be a terrible thing, so one must keep motivating towards the positive views in life."
  • Everything Changes is very much a homemade record. Lennon told Billboard magazine: "It was done mostly at home, in my own time and just by working closely with friends. Whenever they'd pop by for a cup of tea, I'd go, 'Fancy putting a bassline on this or doing some cello or backgrounds?' It was a pleasant process for me."
