about

Harvey's new record featuring Canadian artist Laura Cole is here! An eclectic collection of great motown, jazz, soul, rnb, dub, alternative, rock and more (yes it does all work together!) mostly recorded live off the floor at Harvey's Broadoak Studios. Laura is a rising star in Canada, with her debut album 'Dirty Cheat' which was released in 2014 following a duet with legendary producer, Daniel Lanois on the song, 'Papineau'. This is where Harvey first heard her and instantly realised she had the perfect voice and talent for 'human', an album he's wanted to make for a long time but hadn't found the right collaborator. Laura has been compared to the likes of Amy Winehouse and Etta James. This record blends an eclectic range of styles from 50’s Jazz to Rock to Dub to Motown and beyond!

Already receiving great reviews and much media coverage including plays on BBC Radio 2 in the UK, this is an album essential for all lovers of real, quality, organic music!

Featuring a host of world-class musicians and full horn and string sections, this is the big one!

Track Name: euphoria
As long as you own it
And it doesn't own you
Strung out on a
Substance for two

I’m the biggest fear
In the back of your mind
Dirty little secret
You don’t realize

So you think you're special
And invincible
Swearin’ your use
Only medicinal

It’s good to finally meet you
I’ve been waiting for your call
I only want a little
But I’ll take it all

What’s your method?
The credit card crush?
Does it pair nicely
‘Cause you're such a lush
The length you go to for
Euphoric Rush

I’m looking for bliss
In a sorrow situation
Took the remedy
In anticipation

You’re in over your head
Now whatcha gonna do
You let the sedative
Get a hold of you

Its a shame
The antidote didn't work
Blame it on yourself
Not the “pharmacy clerk”

Dirty little secret Antidote dont work

Yeah you took the remedy
Antidote don’t work
It didn't do it for ya
Credit card crush
Bag it up now
A substance for two
I’m onto you yeah…
Track Name: chasing the dark
I feel like moving on,
I guess I stayed right here too long.
I never meant for things to be this way,
I’m just treading water…

Creatures in the cornflower blue,
Wires divide the view.
A home star sets sky a fire,
I’m looking to you.

Forever, the one,
Forever, the one behind,
Forever, the one
Chasing the dark.

Searching the underground,
No crystal clear for me,
Just the velvet green of my dreams,
How will you end the show?

The magnetic fields will pull,
They wanna keep me here for good.
If I could find the will to break away,
I could learn to swim with the tide.

Forever, the one,
Forever, the one behind,
Forever, the one
Chasing the dark.

Travelling along,
At the speed of my horseshoe mind.
Will I find the end of the start,
The start…

Forever, the one,
Forever, the one behind,
Forever, the one
Chasing the dark.
Forever, the one,
Forever, the one behind,
Forever, the one
Chasing the dark.
Chasing the dark.
Track Name: skeletons
If I’ve done wrong
I’ll ask for forgiveness
Exactly who I am?
That’s only my business

More than meets the eye
Below the surface
We’re all striving
For some sort of purpose

I’m all yours
If you're all mine
Flood gates are open
Tell me is it divine?

I got passion
And yeah I’m confident
I can live two months
On a single compliment

I am not, invincible by any means
I am, human, the creator of all machines
I live, my life, I make mistakes along the way
I don’t, give up, not a sinner not a saint

A bag of bones
I got some skeletons
The past is the past
It’s somewhat irrelevant

I’m flesh and blood
With imagination
A dainty dame
Who never acts out of desperation

I am not, invincible by any means
I am, human, the creator of all machines
I live, my life, I make mistakes along the way
I don’t, give up, not a sinner not a saint
Track Name: daddyo
Sometimes,
When I look up at the moon.
I like to imagine that,
Somewhere you’re looking up too.

Remember when,
I was just a little girl?
We promised we would we would always keep -
each other safe from harm.

Why did you have to go?
I miss you so,
My Daddy’o.

Sometimes,
It feels like you’re right by my side,
But when I’m feeling lonely and blue,
Heaven knows the oceans I’ve cried.

Why did you have to go?
I miss you so,
My, oh my sweet Daddy’o.
Track Name: too much, too late
As if I’m not what you wanted
As if I’m not what you need
Gettin’ hot and heavy on the highway
But I’m about to lower your speed

As if things have been forgotten
As if I ever forgave
Regret isn’t that uncommon
I’ma take this one to my grave

What if I said you were everything I needed
Lived with the fact that you have been defeated
There’s too much
That’s too late
You’re overrated

If only you hadn't listened
If only you had caved
My heart wouldn't be imprisoned
I wouldn’t feel so depraved

Too bad you were so suspicious
I was all sorts of misled
You drove me to be vicious
Full speed ahead

What if I said you were everything I needed
Lived with the fact that you have been defeated
There’s too much
That’s too late
You’re overrated

Too bad, so sad
If only you’d been a - better man
As if, you wish
I’ll just sit back and watch you reminisce

Don’t got time for hocus pocus
There’s no magic to be cast
I ain’t your magician
‘Cause ain’t got it half as bad

What if I said you were everything I needed
Lived with the fact that you have been defeated
There’s too much
That’s too late
You’re overrated
Track Name: make your mark
If you’d finish what you started
Tread waters uncharted
There’d be no telling of what you could do

If you’d reach full potential
Not be so cynical
Wouldn't be the failure you're used to

If your heart is always in it
And you keep your commitment
This would be a walk in the park

You shouldn't be so lazy
But your room stays hazy
You’re a flint without a spark

A sun that doesn't shine
A moon that doesn't rise
A flame that doesn't light up the dark
A bell that doesn't ring
A song no one can sing
Bout time you make your mark

Your dream ain’t being lived
And it’s getting hard to give
When you see no reciprocity

With unfulfilled potential
You’re bruising your credential
Enough of your hypocrisy

A sun that doesn't shine
A moon that doesn't rise
A flame that doesn't light up the dark

A bell that doesn't ring
A song no one can sing
Bout time you make your mark

Are you afraid - of success?
Enslaved - by your stress
Were you forced on your way
A direction that caused your dismay

A sun that doesn't shine
A moon that doesn't rise
A flame that doesn't light up the dark

A bell that doesn't ring
A song no one can sing
Bout time you make your mark

You expect too much
But who am I to judge
At least I’m the one who's striving

If you weren't so lazy
And covered up those ladies
You could be one beside me thriving

A sun that doesn't shine
A moon that doesn't rise
A bell that doesn't ring
A song no one can sing
A sun that doesn't shine - its about time - that you make your mark
Track Name: shooting star
I'm on a quest for a light
A spark if you will
No need for alcohol
No Drugs no pills

A quest for something different
A quest for a change
And when I conquer
My name will reign

The world is the world
You are who you are
You only have so long
To wish on a shooting star.

A search for the truth
And honorable mention
So long they look past
My imperfect reflection

Why I think it's so simple
Ill never understand
You could be a twinkle
In my master plan

The world is the world
You are who you are
You only have so long
To wish on a shooting star.

As jagged hearts may stab and stab
You always be there to bring the good out in the bad
If only I could grasp it now here today
I think of all the wonderful things I could say

With wisdom of life
And action of grace
With strong awareness
My hearts in its place

Secure and smiling
I hold onto my present
For today is the day
I vocalize my sentiment

The world is the world
You are who you are
You only have so long
To wish on a shooting star.

The world is the world
You are who you are
Track Name: risk love
You don’t need no safety net
Settling always somehow
Turns into a regret

You don’t have to bet it all
Give a gamble even if it won’t
Leave you standing tall

Sift all the possibilities
The leap of faith just might make you
Fall down to your knees

It doesn't have to turn out well
At the very least
You'll have a story to tell

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Play your part, get lost, go out and wander
Stars can’t shine without the dark
Risk Life, Risk Livin’
Risk Love

A goal that’s out of reach
Seems odd since that ones
In sight for me

This globes your oyster pearl
It takes all sorts of people
To make a perfect world

With optimistic attitude
What you put in
Can make aspiration come true
Fortune favours the bold
Your times worth more
Than the highest - karat gold

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Play your part, get lost, go out and wander
Stars can’t shine without the dark
Risk Life, Risk Livin’
Risk Love

You could be able
You should have a light heart
You could be noble
A masterpiece of art

You could be adored
You left so much unexplored
Take a chance for romance
Always wanting more

Stars can’t shine without the dark
Risk life, Risk livin’
Risk love

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Play your part, get lost, go out and wander
Stars cant shine without the dark
Risk Life, Risk Livin’
Risk Love
Track Name: redeemed
I only got so many things to give
You took me as a whole
You have given me love to live
Yeah - you have bound my soul

Suffering from lust
Only you can fulfill
You taught me how to trust
Even against my will

My every thought
Every hope and every dream
Sin has forgot
I am redeemed
I am redeemed

You provide hope in times of trial
There is no life without you
Although it took a while
I knew you’d pull through

I’ve loved before
But it was never like this
You were too hard to ignore
I was longing for your kiss

My every thought
Every hope and every dream
Sin has forgot
I am redeemed

My deliverance from sin
My salvation
Reaching to rid my shame
Revoke an unlawful flame
In full esteem
I am redeemed
I am redeemed

You only got so many things to give
I praise you as a whole
I’ll give you love to live
I have bound your soul

My every thought
Every hope and every dream
Sin has forgot
I am redeemed

My deliverance from sin
My salvation
Reaching to rid my shame
Revoke an unlawful flame
In Full esteem
I am redeemed
I am redeemed
Track Name: this restless heart
Sometimes I feel like I’m losing my mind
‘Cause this little town won’t let me go.
I long for the open road,
And the land where the wild things can grow.

Crazy I may be but all that I know,
Is my little soul hungers for more.
It burns deep inside when I think of goodbye,
But my dreams call to me from distant shores.


Tell my Mama and tell my Pa,
Oh how I love them true.
And when this restless heart is still,
I will come home to you.


Down by the old trees we shared our first kiss
And talked about the life we would live.
We were too young then to understand,
The future is written on the wind.

Now the sun’s setting fast on the fields where we played
And the shadows have grown long and tall.
Farewell to my little town,
Oh how I’ll miss you all.


Tell my Mama and tell my Pa,
Oh how I love them true.
And when this restless heart is still,
I will come home to you.
Track Name: flying out to red
This lake we’re swimming in is a forgery,
This thing we call reality makes no sense to me.
I try to integrate, keep spinning all the plates,
But the equation just won’t take this damn duality.

Between the upper atmosphere and soil,
We live and laugh and weep and work and toil.
Never making sense of what lies beyond the fence,
It’ll all be revealed when we shed this mortal coil.


So what does it matter?
Why should we care?
When we’re all here right now,
Like fish swimming through the air.

Flying out to Red, the long way.
Do we always make it harder on ourselves?
Flying out to Red, the long way round.
Do we always make it harder on ourselves?


Go find yourself a new machine,
One to take you to the edge of what we know.
Ride the slipstream through competitors and clouds,
Until you find the fold, the way towards the light.

This waking dream is more than fantasy,
The fruits of our imagining will set us free.
To know it shakes belief, replaces fear and grief,
To find what lies beneath our frail humanity.


So what does it matter?
Why should we care?
When we’re all here right now,
Like fish swimming through the air.

Flying out to Red, the long way.
Do we always make it harder on ourselves?
Flying out to Red, the long way round.
Do we always make it harder on ourselves?
Flying out to Red, the long way.
Do we always make it harder on ourselves?
Flying out to Red, the long way round.
Do we always make it harder on ourselves
Track Name: home
Like Krishna and Radha
Misplaced in this Maya
Would Shiva’s Vasuki guide one to the other?
I searched every subtle place
Asked what am I for?
The questions rang out from my core.
Through visions and dreams
I could hear you were calling
But daylight brought sorrow for that which was missing
I knew not what I had lost
How could I forget
Your sweetness, your beauty, your power?

But I..hi hi
I..hi..hi
Oh I..hi hi
Lost my way
Mmm… I lost my way…

Tears took their toll on us
Through years upon years
We waded through time ‘til we grew
What nature made separate
We sought to undo
Somewhere and somehow we both knew.
I looked in other worlds
While you looked inside
Filling your books with prophetic words and line
Chance is the certainty
From which we are made
The tenuous threads that connected our minds

But I..hi hi
I..hi..hi
Oh I..hi hi
Lost my way
Mmm… I lost my way…

The breadcrumbs laid out through this universe,
Distinct from the stardust which binds us
Were scattered like ships on the ocean
But shining like beacons to guide us ‘til

I hi…hi,
I…hi…hi…
Oh I…hi…hi
Found my way,
Ooh we found our way…
Home…

You are my twin flame
You light up my fire
I never thought love could beget such desire.
On Friday thirteenth
In November you came
And I knew that I’d loved you before.
