Michael Lane releases the spherical indie folk single “Moment” on October 23rd. The previously known global reality ceased to exist a few months ago. The certainty of a quite predictable future is overtaken by current, difficult to calculate events. Recognizing, living and enjoying the moment has gained much greater importance since then.
„‚Moment‘ is a song about letting go, embracing the present moment, and living life to the fullest. It’s an emotional atmospheric soundscape inspired by the beauty of life itself. Life’s too short to focus on things you can’t change. Everyone says time goes by so fast, that’s true if you’re not living in the moment, so rather try to live in the present, because in reality, the present moment is all we really have.“ – Michael Lane explains.
If there is a modern folk-pop artist who has seen the harsh realities in life, it is Michael Lane himself. As a US soldier in his twenties, sent to Iraq and Afghanistan, Michael was forced to live at cruelty. And if his previous albums were like a kind of musical diary in which these experiences were reflected, Michael Lane’s regained ease and joy can clearly be seen in „Moment“. The song is a message of hope and positive certainty that a time of crisis will lead people back to the important things.
Successes such as two top 50 songs in the German charts, four albums, international tours and the single “Liberty” as the official song of the 2015/2016 Four Hills Tournament, Europe’s biggest international ski jump event, have made the German-American known to the public. In addition to his work as a musician, Michael Lane is currently also active as a songwriter for production music and as a music producer in his remote “Studio Waldblick“.
