Anneke gives more details about this song: [gdlr_quote align=”center” ]’Endless Sea’ serves as an introduction to our story-based album ‘The Diary’. Susanne, the main character, sings about her husband Joseph, who has just sailed out on another long voyage to the Far East. We are extremely excited to offer everybody a first taste of our forthcoming album with the release of these lyric videos.[/gdlr_quote]

The album concept is a tale of love, loss, and separation told through the story of two fictional seventeenth-century lovers. A Dutch sailor embarks on a two-year voyage, leaving his wife at home in Holland. The only way for the couple to communicate and keep their love alive during the long separation is through letters. These letters form the basis for the songs on the album.
