Temple At Midnight, a new collection of songs from Miten, is a soulful, no-frills, all-acoustic tale of love and redemption.
The album celebrates the many dimensions of love and meditation he has explored on his journeys, from his hedonistic days in London’s rock scene in the 70s to a voyage of self-discovery in mystic India, and on to twenty years of world tours with Deva Premal, diving deeper and deeper into himself.
Throughout these evocative songs – in the steady flowing gospel groove of River Man; the Zen blues of No Goal But This; the mellow, reflective One Step At A Time and Exactly As It Is (featuring Deva Premal), to the rays of moonlight illuminating the Rumi-inspired lyrics of All Is Welcome Here, plus a haunting version of his beloved Beatles’ Norwegian Wood – Miten pays homage to a life lived fully and without compromise.
Temple at Midnight gives a voice to our intimate inner spaces, with songs that welcome us however they find us, sharing our fears, celebrating our joys and, through it all, reminding us of “the silence gently growing.”
