Tender and featuring virtuoso fingered guitar with a soothing voice that spurs an urgency of separated lovers. The video fits the lyrics with well constructed prosody. The cold and overcast day with the solitary man has a lonely and slightly depressing atmosphere that is fitting. However the song while lonely has an uplifting hook that reminds the listener that whatever emotional hardship they might be facing it won’t be long until they’re through and everything is much better. A song for your quiet Sunday morning coffee and a tranquil moment of self reflection Okay Mann gives you “It Won’t Be Long”
About The Song:
‘It Won’t Be Long’ tells the story of a lonely man left behind. Straddling the line between invention and convention, the tune’s uplifting pop sensibility helps the dark lyrics hide in plain sight. ’It Won’t Be Long’ begs the question: “What would you do to be next to the one you love?” with simple, patient, production and the melancholy twinge of honesty. I’m open to offers to premiere the song – if you are interested, please let me know!

After a hectic day of shooting in various locations across south-western Iceland, Mathison raced in his rental car to catch his connecting flight to Oslo to finish tracking the accompanying song.
