John Cale: If You Were Still Around

It has recently been one year since Lou Reed died and his longtime collaborator and bandmate in VU, John Cale, did a a new version of the song If You Were Still Around, from his 1982 LP Music for a New Society, accompanied by a brand new video, dedicated to him, directed by Abigail Portner.

John Cale wrote,

A Moth and a Candle met. They decided to become friends. Everyone enjoyed watching their discourse - especially the risk takers. Then one day a big rain came. The Moth couldn’t fly and the Candle puttered out. Everyone laughed in bitter awe and blamed the rain. Most however knew the deeper truth - the Candle remains lit and the Moth will stay close.
