about

“Dust from the Stars” is the first glimpse and title track of the pinnacle album of Team Smile and Nod’s collaboration. The lyrics describe a journey through a confusing dream-world that reveals an infinite dedication to love. The atmospheric and ambient sounds, orchestral build, soft percussion, and calm vocal delivery sooth the listener while invoking imagery of a brilliant night sky. Team Smile and Nod asked their fans to vote between two songs to decide on the album single. “Dust from the Stars” received 70% of the votes. The song displays the depth of the duos musical connection with intentionally delicate production and meticulous songwriting.

lyrics

Convoluted in cloudy memory
Sneaking into my thoughts
Vaguely remember
Something, something
Something, something
Was lost

There you are
Dust from the stars
Everything, nothing more
Particles for the heart
Dust from the stars

Had a hint in my pocket
Now my pocket disappeared
In the end it didn't matter
Felt you near

There you are
Dust from the stars
Everything, nothing more
Particles for the heart
Dust from the stars
The stars

Shhhhhhhh…

Secret message in my head
P- pull the cork- open it
F- find the answer
Write it down
Buh-buh-buh-bury it deep
Buh-buh-buh-bury it deep
Buh-buh-buh-bury it deep

There you are
Dust from the stars
Everything, nothing more
Particles for the heart
Dust from the stars
Dust from the stars

There you are
Dust from the stars
Everything, nothing more
Particles for the heart
Dust from the stars.
