The title track of the album is out today. It got me thinking about the inspiration behind the song, which was a magical trip to New Orleans some years ago. I met so many people there who'd intended to go for a couple of weeks and never left. Had I a US passport I might have done the same.

In the face of such adversity, it remains one of the most incredible places on earth, against all odds. So many elements merge together to make it totally unique.

This picture is of a grotto on North Rampart Street, and it captures that delicious energy that permeates through the whole city.

I love you New Orleans.
