The single, “What are you Waiting For?” was inspired by a visit to the Perth Arts Festival event, “Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak” in Western Australia. Walking the path through Kings Park at night, festivalgoers' look up to a huge colourful images projected on the surrounding trees along with a soundtrack of storytelling about the land, original people, and wildlife.

Fred combined this experience and lyrical imagery of the Canadian north into a powerful song about courage, resiliency and new beginnings. Apropos for the time we are all going through preventing the spread of C19.

Lyrics

What Are You Waiting For? (Magie/Titian) Copper Productions 2020

We were wild
Poised and tongue tied
Oh my God
What are you waiting for?

There’s a rumour that you tangled up the better dream
I’ll remember when you swore that fear
Was worse than the real thing

Lying on the dock
Under the stars
Oh my God
What are you waiting for?

I’ll remember when you swore that fear
Was worse than the real thing

There’s a rumour that you tangled up the better dream
I’ll remember when you swore that fear
Was worse than the real thing

Light up the trees
Lanterns and leaves
Oh my God
What are you waiting for?
