We’re back with Blotto, the game sensation that’s sweeping the world.
The 12th song to be revealed is ‘Then I Close My Eyes’, which will be the tenth song to feature on the live concert disc of David’s forthcoming double-DVD, ‘Remember That Night’ – five-minutes of which you can see over on the Latest News page.
Please mark the ’10’ space on your Blotto cards appropriately.
Although Blotto’s aim is to complete a line – either horizontally or vertically – with correct guesses on your Blotto card, because I’ve taken pity on you over the last few weeks, I will award a prize to the person who tallies up the most correct guesses.
So, fear not, you don’t have to complete a line on your game card.
Yes, I know. I’m just as disappointed that there are unlikely to be any frenzied shouts of “Blotto!” in the next few weeks.
There are 23 songs on the first disc of David’s double-DVD, all of them recorded live at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall last May. (Incidentally, the last of these shows was a year ago today. Doesn’t it only seem like yesterday?)
The second disc has many, many wonderful extras. I’ll have to tell you more about them one of these days. You’re going to love them.
‘Remember That Night’ is released in September: that’s Monday 17 September in Europe and Tuesday 18 September in North America.
David plays the cümbüş, as pictured above, on ‘Then I Close My Eyes’. As you can see, the cümbüş is a Turkish stringed instrument, rather like a banjo.
‘On an Island’ also included David’s debut on saxophone (on the track ‘Red Sky At Night’, song eight on the ‘Remember That Night’ DVD).
Just out of interest, which Blotto number are you most curious about? I’d love to know. There are 11 left, all rather nicely spread out…
You could tell me in the chatroom, which will be open today between 12PM and 2PM (UK) and on Friday between 2PM and 4PM (UK).
