Started in 2010 and finished in 2016 you could say that this song has had time to brew. Quite fitting for a song about the perplexities and conundrums of time travel and the nature of regret.
Originally tracked with Storey’s live band at the time; a three piece lineup with guitar, harmonium, mandolin and 3 piece harmonies, The Invention seemed like a tune that would stand the test of time. For complicated reasons it took another 6 years to complete the song.
In early 2016 Dylan asked good friend and long time collaborator Cole Goodley to lay down some drums on the track. This was just the addition the song needed, bringing it to life and adding the rhythmic feel it had been lacking. Another friend and long time collaborator Simon Gooding completed the recording by using his freakish audio engineering skills to master the track.
The Invention is a laid back melodic song featuring layered instrumentation and thick vocal harmonies.
