If there is a modern folk-pop artist who has seen the harsh realities in life, it is Michael Lane himself. As a US soldier in his twenties, sent to Iraq and Afghanistan, Michael was forced to live at cruelty . Successes such as two top 50 songs in the German charts, four albums, international tours and the single "Liberty" as the official song of the 2015/2016 Four Hills Tournament, Europe’s biggest international ski jump event, have made Michael Lane, a German-American, known to the public. In addition to his work as a musician, Michael Lane is currently also active as a songwriter for production music and as a music producer in his remote "Studio Waldblick“.
"Time heals all wounds” as the saying goes. But just when you need time passing by fast, it often lets you down. The song "Days Can Last Forever" deals with the infinite slowness of
time in the days "after". After the surprising end of a great love, one tries to oppose the pain with hope and reason." says Michael Lane about his new release.
The song is upbeat, significantly more than most of Lane's previous releases. The vocal comes in almost immediately as the song starts so there is a listener's attention maintained from the start till the end. There's brightness and optimism felt throughout the song.
