Originally written by Steve Winwood and Traffic, Dear Mr. Fantasy gets a fresh makeover – forming yet another addictive classic from rock’s one and only The R Train.
Emerging complete with a crisp and captivating series of visuals, including the band lost in the heat of the performance, Dear Mr. Fantasy reignites the guitar and drum chaos and energy of original rock and roll.
Throw in these born to perform prog-rock vocals, and some well-placed warming bass-work, and the track proves every bit the nostalgic anthem that 2020 has been needing.
It’s been the strangest and perhaps most difficult year many of us have faced, the need to focus on the future and brighter tomorrows has been more essential than ever. Enter Mr Fantasy – a magician, wizard, puppeteer – to break the gloom and shine light on all of the good things that are possible.
Feeling like a timeless classic from yesteryear, with a fresh and crisp production finish that allows the performance to really connect in a contemporary way, The R Train’s latest release is an easy one to turn up loud right about now.
Drown out those Monday blues – 2020 is almost over!
