At 63 Nick Lowe is dealing with decidedly adult issues in his songwriting. "House For Sale" off last year's brilliant The Old Magic album is a case in point, a song about the feelings surrounding a break-up and the memories represented by an old family home put up for sale in the aftermath. It's a painful process, perfectly captured by the beautiful video shot in black and white. Lowe is also funny on his own behalf towards the end of the song where he paraphrases his most well-known composition "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding?" - "... with time, care, cash/Peace, love and understanding,/It can be as good as new". Fabulous stuff as always. Nick Lowe is like a fine wine, improving with age.
