Claudio of Coheed And Cambria has posted a moving song for his new-ish son Atlas.
Several months ago, in anticipation of the birth of my son, I wrote “Atlas” for him. At the time, I could only imagine the feelings I’d have for him when I’d have to leave for tour. I didn’t truly understand the power and relevance of the song’s sentiment. Now, after having him in my life for almost three months and with Neverender just a few weeks away, I’m starting to feel it. This will be my first tour away from Atlas. And sure, it will be hard, but it’s all for him. I’d like to share that song with you. – Claudio
First I’d like to say congrats to Claudio and secondly, “Atlas” is already the name of a DIVEST song, dude (JUST KIDDING, promise! I mean, it is, but … one love). The intimate and spare acoustic performance of the video is really cool and Claud has always excelled at acoustic and stripped down, emotional performances. His vocals fit the unorthodox arrangement as well and this is a real winner they ought to do a big studio version of.
