Ocean Blue

Album: Single release only (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Willow Robinson told NME the story behind this country blues ballad:

    "I wrote it with my friend who I was in a duo with. He played the first verse to me and it had this great mood. I went off and wrote the chorus and it just fitted so well. It's about coming of age and how the reality is harsher than you expect. But in the end, everything always resolves itself."
  • Fun Fact: Willow's father is the English movie director and screenwriter Bruce Robinson, who wrote and directed the 1987 cult classic Withnail and I.
