The Making of Distant Light
On the Chaos Music website, Lloyd states that the album is based on homesickness after a long stretch on the road promoting his second album Watching Angels Mend. "That was the headspace of where I was at the time. We went to a lot of strange places, maybe places I don?t want to revisit. It was a pretty lonely time. I think I?d reached a point where I?d just travelled too much."Distant Light features Jim Moginie and Martin Rotsey of Midnight Oil on several tracks. It was produced by Stuart Miller, who had also produced Watching Angels Mend and mixed by Tony Hoffer who has worked with Air, Beck and Turin Brakes.
