Yesterday, Relix premiered the video for the second track off the album, a tune called “Wade In The Water”.As John Butler explained to Relix about the new album,I’ve been dealing with anxiety on and off for ages. I hadn’t always been able to name it. It was in this fractured state that I started trying to wrangle this new mob of songs – wild horses I’d met over the last four years. Songs about family life, love, what it means to be a modern man and personal insights into dealing with my anxious projections. Songs have always been my friends. No matter what I’m going through they help me convey the things my heart feels but my brain is too afraid to say. But grappling with this herd in this state would prove uniquely tricky. As things turned out that journey would actually be critical in helping me deal with my shit. In the meantime though, I was lost and somehow I had to find my way home. There was no choice. Like that classic children’s book, ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’ says; “Can’t go under it. Can’t go over it. Can’t go around it. MUST go through it.The critically acclaimed Australian artist also spoke to Relix about “Wade In The Water”, describing it as “one of my favorite songs off of the album.” Continued Butler,It’s a soul-searching proclamation and a journey back to myself. The words just kinda fell out and I didn’t really know what they meant for a long time until I stood back and took a look at the song and the passage of time I’d just been through. This song celebrates my love for Led Zeppelin, Hip Hop backbeat, Indian classic music and is one of my favorite songs to play live.You can take a listen to the newly released track, “Wade In The Water, from John Butler Trio off their forthcoming album, HOME, below.John Butler Trio – “Wade In The Water” [Official Music Video]
POTCHEFSTROOM, South Africa (Reuters) – South African cricket may be in the doldrums with challenges on and off the pitch, but England coach Chris Silverwood says there will be no complacency from his side ahead of the first test in Pretoria on Dec. 26.South Africa have lost their last five tests, including two shock losses at home to Sri Lanka in February and a 3-0 whitewash in India in October. Meanwhile, boardroom upheaval has sponsors threatening to quit the sport and a strike mooted by the country’s player union.But Silverwood believes that despite their troubles, South Africa will present a big challenge to his side on home soil. “Complacency is one thing we don’t have and I expect South Africa to come out hard‚ they are a proud nation,” Silverwood told reporters after a training session at their Potchefstroom base on Monday.“We expect them to come back hard in all departments and they will be hungry.“But it’s more about concentrating on ourselves‚ getting our things in order and making sure we’re in the best possible position when the first Test arrives.” England lost a two-match Test series in New Zealand at the start of this month and having claimed the 50-over World Cup earlier in the year, Silverwood says they want to concentrate more on five-day cricket for the time being.“The one thing we really want to drive forward is the Test team and we’ll put things in place that will help us do that,” he said. “The New Zealand tour was part and parcel of that and we switched up the batting line-up and looked at new ways of doing things.“It’s not reinventing the wheel by a long shot‚ but New Zealand was a great learning curve for us and we’ll look to keep pushing on from there. “The challenge is getting those first innings runs and as soon as we do that‚ we’ll be very hard to beat.”England might have battled with overseas success on a consistent basis of late, but they do appear to enjoy touring South Africa, where they have won two series and drawn the other on their last three visits.South Africa’s last series success on home soil against the English was in 1999. In the 13 Tests played since, England have won five, South Africa three and there have been five draws.
