This album is dedicated to all to all the travelers, great and small, to researchers, discoverers, pioneers and those who followed the steps of his predecessors.
The initial idea was to name it after Dylan's song "Forever Young" but after I heard the song "Dark Was The Night" by Blind Willie Johnson I knew right away that this is going to be the title.
The reason why I dedicate this album to all those people and why I would dedicate an album to anybody or anything is because I want it to stick to somebody or something.
For the last year I have been traveling more than I used to and for a pretty long period of time did not know what place I could call home. So this is my way of trying to emerge the essence of this album to the traveling theme, to Blind Willie Johnson's record that flew away into outer space onboard of Voyager and to everyone who feels and ever felt homesick.
This is not really a travel story and the music is not really a soundtrack to hiking or sailing or any other ways of getting to places and seeing sights. This is more of a comforting or non-comforting place you stay during your trip.
