Alphanaut Goes Back to the Stars
"Back to the Stars" is the first single from Alphanaut's upcoming LP Little Sun, out June 26, 2012.
In Alan's own words: "The song 'Back to the Stars' marks the final chapter in the Little Sun story of my dog Dingo's life. The album begins with "Falling to Earth," which recounts the experience of birth on a grand cosmic level, and moves through various key moments of his life. I knew I wanted to wrap things up full circle with the journey concluding where it began – in the ethers of space. Even though 'Back to the Stars' is about the afterlife, it was important to for the song to be upbeat and joyous as it touched on the concept of life and death being the passage of energy from one state to the next. Like most of Little Sun, 'Back to the Stars' is told from Dingo's perspective. I imagined him overseeing a gathering of those who loved him and the discovery of his journal, it's pages filled with mementos of the joys, triumphs and tribulations of his time on Earth."
