Today (Mar 31), singer/songwriter and author Phil Joel releases a live video recording of “Better Than I Found It,” which can be viewed below. The recording was filmed live in New Zealand at New Zealand’s Festival One. The track is the title track from Joel’s latest project that was written, recorded, and produced entirely by Joel in his home studio during the quarantine.
“The idea of us all taking responsibility to care for our fellow man, our nation and our planet has really been in the forefront of my mind for the last couple of years, so recording these songs now seemed like perfect timing,” Joel says. “Right now, we’re all being forced to think about the future and what kind of world we want to live in, not only for ourselves and our kids, but for our neighbors and their kids and grandkids too. It’s a time to ask some big questions about where we are and how we got here. But more importantly, it’s about who we want to be as we move into this delicate new future. I’ve tried to explore those questions and reflect the struggles they pose, while also presenting the hope of a better tomorrow.”
