  • Hard copy CD ~ "Best Of" Union Pulse ~ final 5 copies
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Designed and assembled by the band themselves, this limited pressing of 400 discs has been distributed to family and friends as well as each of the bandmates' solo shows following the band's eventual break-up. Only 15 copies remain, so the former frontman of Union Pulse is personally making them available from his new headquarters in New York City, where he is pursuing a solo career. Each copy comes with two all-weather stickers featuring the logo of his new singer-songwriter campaign under his own name, James Tristan Redding. An autograph is available upon request, at no extra charge, but be advised that requires first removing the shrink-wrap. An autographed CD will therefor arrive with no shrink wrap.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Ten Year Anniversary via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

A song by James Tristan Redding, as originally released on the Union Pulse album "Between Love and Addiction" (2009).


Friday night hit like a train
I woke up to the sound of the rain
Rachael's gone, she long over me
Not in love, but neither in pain
Light one up and finish my beer
Cheap champagne and a happy new year
She's the best that I ever had
Broken hearts make the best souvenirs

I'm not in love, as strange as that sounds
It's just me and I'm bringin' myself down
I've been lucky just to make it this far
Christmas eve, and it's time to leave town
Late last night on the highway I prayed
For the strength just to wake up today
There's no girl lonely waiting for me
So I'll take a moment to say that I'm not in love

Seventeen, my guitar in hand
That young man did not understand
April wind and Lucy's lost eyes
Caught my heart at the old baby grand
We've grown up, we've both come so far
But tonight I'm alone at the bar
And by now, you're a long way from home
So happy birthday, wherever you are

If I could rewind, turn back the time
Divine peace of mind just to say
That the years are unkind but we learn from our crimes
And one day you find you're doin' okay
