The intro and outro of 'Rainfall' were completely improvised with Rich Williams (guitar), Gavin Barras (double bass), Alan Taylor (drums) and myself (piano) in a recording session at WR Audio Studio in Manchester. We played over the top of a tranquil sample loop created by Aaron Wood. I then worked over the top of this, improvising some oohs and a few words I wrote in the moment: 'in the rain falls, i feel it all'. Creating this song was quite a meditative process for me and it seemed to unfold very naturally. To me the song is about feeling many mixed emotions and allowing them to come and go, wash over you like rain.
