Ha pasado un año de la muerte de Philip Seymour Hoffman y muchas personas han demostrado su respeto al actor. Una de ellas es Matthew E, quien decidió compartir el sencillo Tranquility de su disco Fresh Blood para rendirle tributo.
Actualmente Matthew se encuentra dándole los toques finales al material para que salga a la venta el 9 de Marzo. Aquí se los dejamos junto a una carta del músico explicando el porque de la canción.
A year ago today we lost Phillip Seymour Hoffman. I didn’t know Phillip, but I had watched everything he did for 15 years. To me, he was everything one could ever want to be in an artist, and although I am no actor I was much more of a student than a fan. Very soon after his death it became crystal clear to me that I wanted to try very hard and write a song for him. He deserved something from me, something that honored him, and showed how grateful I was for all he had given. His death was immensely sad and as deaths such as these go, leaves us crushed that a life so bright has been dimmed. There is a duality in these circumstances, it’s a place where we find darkness in the light, but more powerfully, we find light in the darkness. I tried to find music that felt the same. It’s my best shot, and it’s called Tranquility.
To a man that showed me, over and over, what excellence and craft is, here is a song for you.
