    12" Vinyl by Kaneshii Vinyl on Prince Edward Island.

    Terra Spencer and Ben Caplan became good friends over a cup of tea, with a tender song about a VCR played on Ben's kitchen piano. That afternoon visit was the beginning of Old News, a collection of eleven new songs from Terra's notebook shaped by Ben's imagination as a debut producer. The album was recorded with a host of Halifax's finest players at Fang Recording in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Told by Terra's butterscotch voice and featuring Ben's distinctive sandpaper baritone, these are nostalgic songs about the gentle art of saying goodbye.

Good Friends 02:49
When all is lost and life is upside down A friend is there to turn your day around When your hands are full a friend will hold the door Yes, that is what good friends are for To keep your secrets under lock and key To forgive the flaws that other folks don’t see To remind you of a joke that you once shared Yes, that is how a good friend cares A friend is nice when you need advice They'll steer you clear of trouble They understand when you need a hand They will be there on the double When you need a lift or you feel adrift A friend will throw a line It’s such a gift to have a friend like mine Anyone can love you at your best But only a good friend can pass the test They love you when you're angry, sad, and bitter A friend makes you a winner when you feel like a quitter When you’re tipsy in the glow of candlelight And you ask a friend if they will spend the night But they don’t stay, they go home to someone else That is one way a good friend helps A shoulder you can cry on, nothing more Yes, that is what good friends are for
