OCEAN is a very interesting aspect of my life. It is part of my DNA.
It conveys all things I can’t put into words. Life, loss, love, spirit. As I evolve so too does ‘Ocean’.
The song was first recorded as part of my first album/cassette, “Searching For Heritage“, which I sold when I busked, then for my first self-titled studio album 12 years ago – “John Butler (1998)”. The song has been watched online incredibly over 60 million times in various formats, nearly always live.
I’d like to thank you for your continued support over all these years; it means so much to me. I would like to thank you by offering this first studio recording of ‘Ocean’ in over a decade. I recorded it in my favourite studio, The Compound here in Fremantle, Western Australia, a studio you helped me build. This marks just another fleeting moment in a career that is very much ongoing.
I look forward to bringing you many new songs and albums into the future and continuing this amazing journey with you ALL.
