New release Springtime Cherries

We hope to cheer you up with this,
It was a creative remote cooperation we did yesterday. The video was finished right after the premiere of THE MANDALORIAN on German TV.

BTW, it was the 1st day back in Freedom for me after 2 weeks of quarantine

Lyrically brilliant and a great tune.
Where is Alexandria?


I'm gliding in the distance and watch the world go by
An orbit full of questions, a perforated sky

Thank you to all the AV team for this gift, we're spoiled with this nice surprise! Made my day


Springtime Cherries

Walking all alone in a crowded street
People passing by as perfect strangers
Since you have been gone
I learned I never lived until I really nearly died
And now the carnival is over
And I feel just like a man without a name

Like a ship without a fool,
Like a box without a tool
Like a clown without a joke,
Like the night without a cloak
Like a forest without trees,
Like a lover without Paris

Just like Springtime without cherries
I'm sure one day I stop needing you
But I hear you laughter with evey fibre of my soul
You're winding chains of pain around my mind
While I'm going to where no one knows who I am
To places where you never were
And my heart is a lonely hunter
And I feel just like a gun for hire

Like a word without a wing,
Like a ray without a sting
Like a look without an eye,
Like a crook without a lie
Like a piano without keys,
Just like honey without bees

It feels like Springtime without cherries
Yes, there's no denying,
I see you everywhere since this summer of thousand julies
You know, I sent you mails from my extensive travels
Telling you that I'm feeling ok
But there's not enough in this world to impress you
Even if it was for my fucking lies

Like a ship without a fool,
Like a box without a tool
Like a clown without a joke,
Like the night without a cloak
Like a forest without trees,
Like a lover without Paris

Just like springtime without cherries
Just like springtime without cherries
Just like springtime without cherries

Don't know about anywhere else, but cherries come out in summer here.


Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.

Recolt from end of may to mid-august, so it's ok. Moreover if some comes to fruition at end of may that means there is cherries even before, just not ripe yet.

As Paris is mentioned in the song it makes an adtional pun:
cherries - chérie in french (sweetheart, dear, honey, beloved etc.)
