Serendipity is a strange thing.
I was researching for the second book in The Aunt Enid Mysteries – set in 1920. A throw-away comment about the ‘Great Picnic’ – an affectionate name for the quarantine tent city at the Jubilee Oval, Adelaide, South Australia in 1919. After reading accounts of mental health issues related to the epidemic and its aftereffects, I was moved to write ‘Spanish Flu’. The lyrics were originally written in February, 2020.
Richard Ryall has set my words to music. The song will be released on their upcoming album (and on my webpage store as a digital single) in October.
You will be able to purchase a digital copy from 9th October: https://karenjcarlisle.com/product-category/music-original/
(NB: The new product page will go active around mid-October, 2020.)
Patreon supporters at the Conspirator ($5) and above will receive their copy in October. (You can pledge to support me here)
This is the new cover, designed to give an art deco/steampunk feel:
