Jonathan Richman recorded an original song called "Our Dog Is Getting Older Now" for the new CD of children's songs compiled by Mick Cooke of Belle and Sebastian to benefit Save the Children, a children's charity.
Colours Are Brighter was two years in the making and will be released 16 October on Rough Trade Records.
According to the Colours Are Brighter blog, ". . . Jonathan Richman flouted medical advice to record his track. He had been ordered to give his voice full rest after a problem with his vocal chords had been diagnosed, but ventured on for the cause."
Jonathan toured with Belle and Sebastian in September 2001 on their US West Coast tour as opening act.
