Song of the Day, July 6: Perhaps We Can Sleep by Thompson

Linda_Thompson_photographer_Annabel_VereToday’s song is a standout track from the Thompson family’s 2014 collaboration. Teddy Thompson curated the ten tracks submitted by his parents, siblings, and nephew, building a wonderful testament to their diverse talents. Aptly titled Family, it features some of the strongest songs in their impressive catalogs.

Teddy wrote this song with his mother, Linda. She turns in one of her finest vocals ever, quite an accomplishment. Fragile but strong, it’s a quietly moving track, driven by Teddy’s sympathetic piano. In a family that’s had its share of public drama, the song is cautiously optimistic, hoping for a resolution to past troubles and dreaming of a brighter future.

Enjoy this beautiful song today.
