Album Notes
"Death Valley" is Dan Gannon's first single from his next album, also entitled Death Valley. The song was inspired by a Christmas break camping trip to the desert a few years ago. As the result of taking notes on his surroundings mixed with learning how to camp in the desert during the winter, several pieces of the song developed well before the week-long trip was over. The final touch of the song's conceptual structure was the idea of taking a troubled relationship and finding its rebirth in a place named after death.

The demo that you hear is the one we took to the studio, before any editing or production. The final version is the absolute best representation of the song.
