According to the songwriter, today’s shadow song was inspired by the book Elvis and Me by Priscilla Presley. Hypnotic and inspirational it would become one of the English electronic bands most successful songs and marked the first time that a guitar was used as the dominant instrument. The bands lead singer celebrates his birthday today.
In 2002, iconic American singer and musician known for wearing black would record this song at the suggestion of his producer. The Shadow artist called it, “probably the most evangelical gospel song I ever recorded.”
