The 1st chorus seems twice as long as it needs to be, the last chorus is banging right on though, you got a little magic there for sure. There's a LOT going on in this track but it feels really good, I think mainly due to your amazing vocals.
Thanks for the feedback.

The first verse is just the same length as the second, so not sure why it feels twice as long? lol

My partner has just told me I should lose the horns after I spent a big part of the day doing them. She thinks there is too much going on so maybe losing the pad during the horns is a good call. She also thinks they sound a bit fake, but to me they are not that fake sounding.

I will have to think about if I keep them or not, live with them for a while.

Here is the latest version with the horns in the chorus as suggested earlier.
