Lost Songs

By luke thompson

I have decided to release a collection of unreleased songs from the last 5 years, to help finish off my new album. You can buy this collection for $8 or have the option pay more if you would like to help me finish work on my new album. (I guess its my version of a crowd funding campaign). No one has ever heard these songs except some of my friends and family.

Lost Songs - https://lukethompson.bandcamp.com/album/lost-songs

Some of are these are initial rough recordings, done only moments after the song was written. Some are demo’s, others were recorded for albums but abandoned and unfinished. Some are pretty rough, unmixed and un-mastered. And some of these songs are actually among my favourites.

I hope you enjoy them. This will only be available for two or three weeks and then they go back to being lost songs, only existing on my computer and yours.

If you enjoy it or just want to help me get the new album done please share the link. Thank you, always. xx Luke
