- Nad Sylvan - "Spiritus Mundi" (2021) -
The last track on (bonus track) on my previous album "The Regal Bastard" is a song called "The Lake Isle Of Innisfree". A poem by WB Yeats, set to music by Canadian artist Andrew Laitres. The collaboration with Andrew made me want to find out more about him and more about Yeats. So we started to work together and created this beautiful album based on Yeats´s poems. It´s a departure from the vampirate, but you can almost hear him lurking in the shadows sometimes. And I did borrow his harpsichord..
