Joe Pug “Crescent Bridge”

Singer/Songwriter Joe Pug has released the opening track, "Crescent Bridge", from his forthcoming fifth studio album, The Diving Sun. The album began as a collection of lost gems and b-sides from various studio sessions over the years, but has blossomed into a full-blown new album after the addition of several new songs.

"Crescent Bridge" was written on a his children's Tom Thumb toy piano; "I almost never play it, preferring the upright piano in my studio, but one night last year I sat down at its keyboard to kill some time,” Pug says. “Almost immediately the opening notes to “Crescent Bridge” came ringing out from Tom Thumb. It was almost as if my fingers themselves were writing the instrumental part without any help from my mind or my ear. Ten minutes later I had the song.”
