Skinny Kid (Original Instrumental Demo – Known as "Nine Eleven")

about

Skinny Kid was the first piece that I turned into a proper song when I refactored the demos into the final album. I adapted the lyrics I wrote for a different tune—now discarded from the project—and it fits beautifully.
The first version of Nine Eleven lasted 8 minutes and 30 seconds. Skinny Kid is now a 3-minutes song with a pretty standard structure. It’s also a personal statement about simplicity, and a desire to go to the core of things.
