Die Musik für die Veröffentlichung seines seit Jahrzehnten ersten Studio-Albums hat Musik-Innovator Thomas Dolby im einzigartig inspirativen Ambiente eines ausgebauten Rettungsbootes komponiert. Aus diesem Album spielt er heute als Erstaufführung einen wunderschönen und bewegenden Song, der von einer Nacht mit einer Legende handelt. Begleitet wird er von den Mitgliedern des modernen Streichquartetts Ethel.
