Review[edit]

On his eighth solo album Songs From The Last Day On Earth David Usher explores the stirring emotions that give rise from examining the many ways that a life can be distilled down to a precious few collected moments. "This is really my first album with a central theme. It’s premised on a group of friends sharing their last day together and some thoughts on what, in the final reckoning, might stand out as the things that have stayed with them over a lifetime," explains Usher, giving a tacit nod to the inspiration for the album’s title. Songs From The Last Day On Earth reunites Usher with longtime collaborator and co-producer Jonathan Gallivan who was at the helm of his last record, The Mile End Sessions which included David’s first #1 french radio hit with "Je repars" (2011).
