Curious Minds alternate versions

Nostro I'm loathe to say it, but Charlie's recent albums just haven't resonated with me - I can't relate to the lyrics, that (to me) sound like lecture snippets.

Here we have the Charlie I love, and followed since the early Harem Scarem days. Lyrically, his scientific bent just flows and is gorgeously meteoric. The lushness harks back to the 'Story of Us' album. Hit repeat & soak in the world's grandeur - 'let the wonder shine'. Exquisite. Favorite track: Curious Minds.

I’ve been wondering how we got here. Are we all alone? Calling out from this pale blue dot Is someone else at home? I’ve been watching the light that moves so swiftly across the sky Paints the world so blue and sends it to my eye Been thinking ‘bout curious minds Albert Einstein rides on a beam of light Time and space join as one, so sublime The wonder it shines I’ve been dreaming of neutrinos The minutest things Rushing through the void On vibrating strings Been thinking ‘bout exuberant minds Michael Faraday sees magical lines Force electric, magnetic, divine The wonder it shines Curious minds Let the wonder shine I’ve been thinking ‘bout inspired minds Hubble’s universe expands all around Trace it back to primordial time – Bang! And it shines, let it shine Curious minds Let the wonder shine


The latest installment in Charlie’s new approach to songwriting – rock and roll with a poetic, scientific bent – and a theme song of sorts for his new band.

Three versions - full length, the shorter radio edit and the instrumental version.

‘Curious Minds’ is the first single from the forthcoming album ‘Sublime – songs of science, metaphysics and ecology’. It is a grand, epic meditation on some of the most important qualities that make us human – curiosity, discovery and wonder – mixing personal reflection with the insights of scientists of the past


released February 5, 2015

Clare Moore – Tympani drums, Tim Deane – Piano, Bryan Colechin – Bass and Troy Rogan – Cello.

Produced by two sonic maestros. Recorded and Mastered by Simon Grounds in Melbourne and mixed by Darren Seltmann – formerly of The Body Electric and The Avalanches – in Los Angeles.
