A Black album – November 2009

There is no mercy in these songs – no flabby new-age lame excuses. Forgiveness is real and hard or not at all.

Released in November 2009. Water on Stone marked the first release under the Black name since Between 2 Churches.

A number of the tracks were made available for download before the album was released.

This release is the first time the original recordings have been released on CD alongside a DVD of all eight of the films.


A series of films, starring Colin, was made to accompany the album – one film for each song on the album:

One comment on “Water On Stone”

What an amazing album! At the moment my favourite one. It has a huge depth, lots of melancholy, some beautiful sadness and an outstanding instrumentation – the best of all Black/CV albums. With its Tex-Mex-, “desert”- and Latin-vibes and the great arrangements it sounds like an exceptional mixture between Calexico/Giant Sand & Daniel Lanois & Leonard Cohen [“I Hate You (Don’t Leave)] but distinct! The one thing which makes the difference is Colin’s beautiful voice. I know it’s very subjective but I’m hooked on it. Take some time and listen to it carefully. A timeless legacy!
