New Horizons (5:11)

Cover of This Is The Moody Blues

From This Is The Moody Blues and 17 other releases

“New Horizons” is a 1972 song by the progressive rock band, The Moody Blues. Written by the bands lead guitarist Justin Hayward, it was included on their 1972 album Seventh Sojourn.

Justin Hayward wrote “New Horizons” both for his late father, and in anticipation of the birth of his daughter, Doremi. It has a similar theme to “Emily’s Song,” which John Lodge wrote for his newborn daughter on their previous album.

Bruce Springsteen later borrowed the melody from the bridge of this song for the bridge in his 1987 song Tunnel of Love.

    The Moody Blues deserve much more recognition than just being referred to as an reliable oldies act.

    "Where is this place that we have found. Nobody knows where we are bound." In 94 a fan had a huge banner that they had made at one of their concerts in Richmond and all it said was New Horizons. The Moody Blues never played it that night.
