Dublin musician Greg Clifford returns with his new melodic single ‘Long Lost Friend’.
The lead track off his forthcoming album ‘Lines of Desire’ offers an American soulful sound from the multi-instrumentalist.
According to Clifford, the song is about change and moving forward. Speaking about the new single, which was recorded at Sun Studios, Dublin, Clifford said: “The song represents sacrifice, defiance and the darkness that suppresses you.Change is always tinged with nostalgia but you must move forward in order to survive. It mirrors my journey through life as well as the music industry.” He also said the song is unlike anything he has ever recorded before, he added: “I’m incredibly proud of this song and I’m excited for people to hear it.”
The song is accompanied by a video filmed by Greg and his filmmaker father Dave and is set for release on March 5th.

Since then he has gone on to release his second album 20/20 Vision.
