Frotee has compiled two songs inspired by Estonian summer for their sixth release on 7“ single.
While it’s a cover version of Roberta Flack’s song “What a Woman Really Means”, it was given new lyrics which eloquently describe the summer and its brevity (title translates as “Summer Doesn’t Stay”).
It’s sung by popular Estonian singer Heidy Tamme, recorded in 1982, and arranged by Tiit Paulus, one of the best Estonian jazz guitarists.
On B-side you’ll find solo guitar track “Selle suve laul” (“This Summer’s Song”), written and played by Tiit Paulus. He wrote the song as an ode to his new home he had bought “this summer” on the biggest island of Estonia, Saaremaa.”
Press play and drift away. Makes you wanna go to Saaremaa!
