about

The honesty in what is sung and truth in what is left unsaid,
a lyrical axis of fragility and strength.

These are the revelations between the lines in the songs of Lisa Richards. Her fifth, full length album's title track, ‘Beating of the Sun’, was chosen by Expedition Recordings for its haunting, mysterious vocals, paired with the winding mystery of the instrumentation. We felt it couldn't be more perfect for a dance floor, lounge bar, or that moment in time when you simply need to just "get away." Lisa takes you there, and our remixers . . . took her to places she never went.

Track Name: Beating of the Sun (Original)
I went walking out in the midday sun
in the middle of July who is the crazy one?
Trying to melt the grief clinging to my bones
shake free the restless heartbeat, shadowing my own
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue cloudless sky
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue burning cloudless sky
I went searching for your face in a country you were never in yearning for your arms to hold me tight, your love to draw me in To stare one more time into the deep blue liquid of your eyes
to fall under the spell of your laughter and your lies
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue cloudless sky
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue burning cloudless sky
I strip the clothes from my sweat stained skin
I can't fight the heat, I try but I won't win
drifting into sleep you still rumble through my head
with your songs of the forgotten and your voices of the dead
but it was just me, I was all alone, I was listening to, the strangest sound...

The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue cloudless sky
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue cloudless sky
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue burning cloudless sky
Track Name: Beating of the Sun (Ortalio Remix)
I went walking out in the midday sun
in the middle of July who is the crazy one?
Trying to melt the grief clinging to my bones
shake free the restless heartbeat, shadowing my own
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue cloudless sky
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue burning cloudless sky
I went searching for your face in a country you were never in yearning for your arms to hold me tight, your love to draw me in To stare one more time into the deep blue liquid of your eyes
to fall under the spell of your laughter and your lies
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue cloudless sky
The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue burning cloudless sky
I strip the clothes from my sweat stained skin
I can't fight the heat, I try but I won't win
drifting into sleep you still rumble through my head
with your songs of the forgotten and your voices of the dead

The beat beat beating of the sun in the big blue cloudless sky
