30 October 2020
New single 'This Time' out today including video
Marathonare approaching the finishing line step by step!
One month before the release of the band’s debut album “Mark Kelly’s Marathon”, on November 27th, the band around Marillion’s keyboard player Mark Kelly tackle the subject of modern and global love with the new single "This Time".
The song explores how in today's world long distance relationships regularly span thousands of miles in the absence of shared physical experience. When even time zones are different, these relationships must thrive online or whither and die.
It is a song about how both the times together and apart can be more meaningful.
Mixed by “Doves” producer Dan Austin, this Beatles influenced pop/rock song comes along with a brand new and very colourful music video.
Together with Oliver Smith (vocals), John Cordy (guitar), Pete “Woody” Wood (guitar), Henry Rogers (drums) and his nephew Conal Kelly (bass & Guitar), Mark Kelly turned his vision into reality. Marillion bandmate Steve Rothery also played lead guitar on the song “Puppets”.
“Mark Kelly’s Marathon” will be available as a Limited and Numbered CD+DVD Digipak (incl. the Marathon “Real World Session”), LP Gatefold, CD Digipak and Digital on November 27th, 2020 on earMUSIC.
