Song of the Day: Petrichor

After a long day at work I just want to sit back and relax with a glass of wine, a good book or some beautiful music. Something to rejuvenate my senses or wind down before heading to bed.

The aptly named, Petrichor by Keaton Henson featuring Ren Ford is both of those things and more. It’s intimate, reflective and calming. Yet the rain recording in the background is also rejuvenating in a way that very few songs have the capacity to do. As a sucker for the tranquil feel of rain, that exquisite note of the song only adds to my love of it. While the song is simplistic and calm, it’s so full of emotion that you can feel its impact.┬áMusic that you can feel. Is there anything better?

It’s simply one of the most beautiful pieces of music that I have ever listened to.
