RICHARD WALTERS releases his stately sixth new album: ‘Murmurate’.
Often playing eccentrics, underdogs, and misfits, Philip Seymour Hoffman is perhaps best known for his distinctive roles in cult classics like The Big Lebowski, Almost Famous, and Boogie Nights. Tragically passing away in 2014, Richard Walters holds a candle to his immortal legacy with an elegant and elegiac track written in tribute to the actor. Simply titled “Philip Seymour Hoffman”, Walters says of the song:
“Philip Seymour Hoffman was a huge hero of mine and I was heartbroken when he died…this is me imagining his final moments, the slipping away and weird things one might imagine as the lights go out (‘I’m thinking of a hotel before..’) Quite dreamlike and surreal. Who could ever play him better than he played himself? Nobody can fill those shoes.”
