Sunday Song: Singing a New Tune

This song is new to me, brought to me through figure skating. I’ve found many a new song to enjoy by watching this sport my whole life. This song is now the background to a gold-medal winning performance. And it’s a new one on my YouTube video playlist. Thanks, DJ Nathan Chen, and congrats on winning the World Championships. USA! USA!

I had never heard this artist before. He sounded like a mix of Hozier (Take Me to Churchand Billy Bragg (Dolphinson first hearing.

I googled him. He’s known as a visual artist (which explains the uniqueness of his official lyrics video, below). But I enjoyed the haunting tone to his voice as well.

Listen and become bewitched by a bellowing cello. (I love almost no instrument more than the cello.)

Listen and be beguiled by the simple, poignant lyrics.

Listen to the intensity grow, and the dissonance add layer after layer.

Join me, in the Land of All, with Woodkid.

P.S. Watch Nathan Chen, 2019 World Champion, skate to this song.


What is Sunday Song? Well, I’m a musical gal, from my wee days taking piano and drum lessons, to my current stint in a community choir. To me, listening to music is what going to church is for some, so I celebrate with Sunday Song. Each week, I post a song that’s been my earworm for the week or something that reflects what’s happening in my world along with a wee story why. (Feel free to join in by posting in the comments — thoughts about my video/what it means to you, a video you’re enjoying this week, etc.) Also, check out all we do at DaisySmileyFace.com.

  1. T Siz,

    This is such a beautifully haunting song! I just dig songs like this, so very much. The moody sway, there is a resonance to it that stays with you after the song ends. Love that.

    As for Nathan Chen, we met him last year at the Giant Center. My niece skates and her club got tickets to spend the afternoon with the skaters before their performance that evening. So glad for him.
