Beverly Glenn-Copeland recently revealed the details of The Ones Ahead, his first studio album in nearly two decades, out July 28 via Transgressive. Previously he shared the single “Africa Calling,” which we named an Essential Track. Today, he’s shared another new song from the album, the gentle and aching “Harbour (Song for Elizabeth)”, which was written about his life partner. You can check it out below via its performance video.

Glenn-Copeland said in a statement, “On each of Elizabeth’s birthdays, I write her a song. I’m not sure of the date that I wrote this one, but we are lucky she had a copy of it or it would have been lost. I had totally forgotten about it. Elizabeth and I have been friends since 1992. In 2007, at a mutual friend’s wedding, the spark of a deep personal love was ignited (there’s an amazing story here about a dream she had prior to that wedding about us, but I’ll leave that for her to tell!). We married in 2009. Since then, she has been my partner in every aspect of life personally and creatively. This song is included on this album to honor her deep love and commitment to me which kept us afloat during the first years of our marriage. I need to also acknowledge her dedication over the last few years during a physically and emotionally harrowing time which necessitated her giving up her own creative life to care for me. For me, a harbour represents a place of safety when the wild oceans of life are going berserk. Elizabeth has been this for me in spades. She had faith in my work when no one much in the world seemed to care. She is the love of my life given to me by the universe and I am grateful”

Transgressive has also announced the reissue of his early albums Beverly Copeland and Beverly Glenn-Copeland, which will be out on CD and vinyl on July 7.
