Rarest Birds

Alison Moyet

 

Taken from her stunning new collection of songs, ‘Other’, released after she recently moved to Brighton, Alison Moyet has written something of a hymn to diversity in her adopted home.

“In Brighton, diversity is standard so that a lack of it elsewhere seems unsightly. This song celebrates a place where a person can be who they were meant to be. It celebrates solidarity when it comes to individualism. It holds hands and calls time on silence, stillness, fear. It celebrates beautiful girls born boys. Stronger boys for being born girls. Freedom to identify where best we fit.”

Amen to that.
