Victorian duo The Weeping Willows have released a new single, written by Willows member Andrew Wrigglesworth with country music veteran Allan Caswell. The song is set at the end of World War I – the centenary of which falls this year – and tells the story of a couple separated by war. The couple in the song was created to tell story of the effect of the War on ordinary Australian people.
‘The Roses Fall’ is beautifully sung as a duet by Wrigglesworth and the other half of the Willows, Laura Coates, although it won’t be appearing on an album of theirs – instead it will be on Caswell’s upcoming release, Mexico.
