In Their Words: “‘Last Day of Spring’ finds a character visiting the fresh grave of someone they knew very intensely, yet for only a very short time. The character is trying to make sense out of their death and the subsequent instructions for delivering roses and money to her family members.

I saw Bert Jansch open for Neil Young a few months before Bert passed away. I always marveled at his acoustic playing. Instead of using a 12-string guitar, I just stacked multiple parts on top of each other to simulate that feel. Lyrically, it’s very sparse yet direct. I wanted to set the scene, but let the listener fill in their own details.” — Bern Kelly
