Release Info/credits
While you’re enjoying the early summer sunshine, listen out for debut single from CROZIER: 
‘Die Young (As Late As You Can)’, out now on iOcco Music.

The track – a summer rock anthem in waiting – is a unique musical collaboration between Scottish musician Alan Crozier, Glasgow alt-rockers Lonehead vocalist Martin Jenkins and Spoonr guitarist Nick Prentice in a one-off celebration of living for today on new Scottish music start-up iOcco Music.
“Funeral For A Friend…”
The song is really about attitude” says Alan Crozier, who wrote the track in lockdown after attending a funeral for a friend. “It’s about making the most of life regardless of your age”.

I was at a funeral for a friend’s father who had lived a full life, dying in his mid eighties in 2019. In the eulogy, Alex McLeish, a friend of the family, quoted anthropologist Ashley Montagu “The idea is to die young as late as possible.” That really struck a chord with me and led me to exploring the ideas about each of the characters in the song’s lyrics – they are all living life to the full, each in their own way”. The Scots musician, now living near Brighton, was in on the early days of the Scottish folk scene with the likes of Billy Connolly and Gerry Rafferty, before pursuing a career in advertising. The track was produced by Nick Prentice and is available now to stream and download from iOcco Music.
