The song represents something of a departure from Scott's more overtly autobiographical work and offers a dark tale of the sort of person who, despite having talents and being strong up to a point, somehow doesn't quite have the strength to avoid being overwhelmed by his own personal problems and demons. Consequently the man fades away and ends up living in the dark - in more ways than one.
We all know people such as the man in question; they stumble, they fall and they never make it back. It could so easily be any of us, which is why this song really resonates with the listener.
'I feel lucky; I'm glad to be free...but man I look where he tripped so easily; could have been me...'
Living in the Dark was recorded at Red Sand Studios, Chorlton, Manchester and produced by Mathieu Garcia and released via Aardvark Records UK.
I have followed Scott's career for a long time and feel suitably qualified to suggest he is growing in strength both musically and lyrically.
Living in the Dark is a new peak for Scott, but don't take my word for it; have a listen for yourself.
