'When in Rome' had a No. 1 hit single in the USA with 'The Promise'. It was released in 1988. In 2004, 'The Promise' was used as the end title theme in the movie, 'Napoleon Dynamite'. Due to unfortunate legal issues over the band name 'When In Rome', Clive decided to go ahead with a solo album.

The official release date (4th July 2013) is significant; not only does it symbolise independence in the United States; it also represents Clive Farrington's independent release outside of 'When in Rome'.

The album exhibits a fusion of styles; blending classical orchestral elements with a modern day electronic sound... as an addition to this, 'Independence' also boasts a hint of the 80's too! It's already receiving extensive radio play and TMR Records have negotiated and licensed two of the tracks to GAP (Mexico) for use on their latest compilation CD. Various tracks on the album could be classed as a cross between the 'Pet Shop Boys', David Guetta, Scott Walker and Robert Miles. The songs are honest, suitably original and highly emotive.

The album 'INDEPENDENCE' was released on their own record label: TMR (Tough Monkey Records) through Kobalt Label Services / AWAL on July 4th 2013.

------- ------- LYRICS ------- -------

VERSE 1:
There was a time
Our heads in the clouds
No reason or rhyme
Or searching for rainbows
Without knowing why
The long hot summers
We thought would never end
And they never did

CHORUS:
And we never found
The heart of the unicorn
We never found
Something so beautiful
We never found
The heart of the unicorn
We never found
That truly magical place

VERSE 2:
When you see me reaching
In search for your soul
Make no mistake
My heart won't grow cold
Failure to deliver
My hopes and fears
Recalling the moments
When your temper brought tears

CHORUS:
And we never found
The heart of the unicorn
We never found
Something so beautiful
We never found
The heart of the unicorn
We never found
That truly magical place

INSTRUMENTAL:

CHORUS:
And we never found
The heart of the unicorn
We never found
Something so beautiful
We never found
The heart of the unicorn
We never found
That truly magical place

Something so beautiful...
