Spirit came about after I met William Orbit while I was at a Real World Recording Week (a great story in itself), and we got talking and he suggested we make an album as he’d liked the song I’d done with Massive Attack.  I thought it was one of those many things that was talked about and not acted upon, but some time later I was in Australia on tour with De Dannan and I got a call from William who’d tracked me down there and again said we should record some music, so I knew he actually was serious. 

When I got home I got together songs that I’d written and some ideas for some beautiful traditional songs that I’d always wanted to sing and we went to work at his studio then in Crouch End in London and mine down in Sussex.  I loved his elegant production and his inventive ideas and the music came together pretty quickly. – CL
