'On the Way …' is very deliberately influenced by South African township music, which I love, and musicians such as Dollar Brand/Abdullah Ibrahim, and Hugh Masekela. All of the tunes I had already played in this genre were in the key of F major, and I struggled to find a way to write a tune that didn’t morph into an already existing piece. In the end I changed the key (up a tone to G major) to allow my creativity to find a new direction.
