General information

Written by: A. Lee

Lost Whispers is an intro that first appeared during the 2009 shows (see Maquinaria Festival 2009). The song was written during the electronic experimentation period in 2009 in order to give an idea, to all the fans, the kind of sound that could be heard in the third album. However, the initial sessions for that album were scrapped by the label. This album that never was released was denominated by Amy as "Broken Record"[1].

This is what Amy had to say about this track during its first appearance in 2009:

I'm glad we were able to use at least just a minute of new music. Terry and I wrote that a few months ago and its been in the "half done" bin for awhile. I think it turned into a beautiful intro.[2][3]
