San Francisco-based songwriter Glenn Donaldson has been quite productive in recent years. He’s been dropping one new album each year since 2019 and a fourth one is already on the horizon for next February. With Pour The Light In we get a lovely teaser of the new material which Donaldson releases under the moniker The Reds, Pinks And Purples. Just like the title implies it’s a song that spreads warmth, hope and a much needed positive notion in the troubled times we all live in. According to the artist the title phrase came to him by reversing the Magazine song title The Light Pours Out Of Me. He furthermore adds: “My song describes a spiritual rebirth, maybe wondering if such a thing can happen and if it can lift a person out of despair.” And yes, we gotte say that track really does lift the spirit. So, in case you are in search for a soulful track to guide you through the cold, let it be this one by The Reds, Pinks & Purples today. His new album Summer At Land’s End is set to arrive on February 4.
