September 2022 and a brand new Cold Flame single entitled 'Last Flight'. The song was written by Cold Flame band leader and main songwriter, Pat Rowbottom, and is performed by members of the band. Lasting just under four minutes, the theme of the song reflects the growing awareness around the world of the dangers of climate change on humanity. Despite the gravity of the lyrical content, the song retains an upbeat feel - most welcome in the times we currently find ourselves in. The single will initially be available as a download only release. Last Flight by Cold Flame is officially released via Ditto Music on Saturday September 17 and is available to download on all the usual platforms including Apple, Amazon, Deezer and Spotify.

To coincide with the release of the single, the band engaged Derbyshire artist Greg Williamson to provide a suitable visual image. Greg an aspiring young artist based in Glossop came up with an intriguing design image of an owl in flight using the medium of rust on steel. The blue background was created by heating a piece of metal to change it's colour. This process is called 'bluing' The colour changes from grey to wheat colour and then blue and purple. This creates a background that resembles a cloudy night sky. Greg then used rust to create the owl image on top of the metal which then affects a change in colour whereupon the image is then sealed. The use of the Owl to portray a visual image to accompany the serious overtones of the lyrics is deliberate. Owls represent wisdom, knowledge, change, transformation, intuitive development, and trusting the mystery. Owls can show up when you are being asked to listen to your intuition. They are tied to the spiritual symbolism of death which brings about new beginnings with a higher understanding and evolved perspective. This Owl image has inspired Greg to continue working using these ideas on new related artwork.
