Album Notes
"Čekaću te" marks the first collaboration between Serbian singer and poet Dalibor Banović and American composer J S Kingfisher. The track was brought to life in Kingfisher's Los Angeles studio, with Tony Blondal on guitar, Stefanie Fife on cello, and Kingfisher himself on piano and melodica.

"Čekaću te" – "I Will Wait for You" in English – is set in the ancient city of Budva, on the Montenegrin coast. Dalibor lived in Budva for many years; he currently resides in Los Angeles.

English translation of "Čekaću te" ("I Will Wait for You"):

I’ll send you a piece
of the Adriatic sea,
torn from the walls of Old Budva;
but tell not a soul,
for if Budva should know,
she will rage at her stolen gold.

I will tell you secrets
of the warm Mistral,
who furrows the sea
and speaks in whispers,
but only to me, who understands,
who hears the wind, and knows.

I’ll stain the page
of your letters with orange,
fruit and promise
of the tree in my yard,
and sit and wait for you to find me
on the cobbled stairs of Old Budva.
