Compass is my personal favourite track from Miracles and in my top five Two Steps From Hell tracks of all time. I think it’s a seriously underrated one!

I decided that I wanted to make this video of Compass because I was actually feeling very miserable from these things. These all happened during uring the days between Friday 8 and Wednesday 12 April 2017.
-A terrorist attack was carried out in Sweden where a man ran over and killed innocent people in a shopping district
-Islamists bombed two Coptic churches in Alexandria, Egypt, killing 45 people, 80 others wounded
-The USA bombed a Syrian airbase and appears to be getting involved in yet another Middle-Eastern conflict and increasing tensions with Russia
-The USA moved warships closer to North Korea, with fears of nuclear retaliation
-Gay people were arrested in large numbers and taken to concentration camps in the Chechnya region of Russia, just like the concentration camps in World War II
-A story came out about men in Indonesia being arrested by religious for being gay as well, and a video of this surfaced
-A man was manhandled off a United Airlines flight in the USA despite being a legitimate, paying customer, and videos were published showing the distressing incident
This news of the world is distressing when all of these things happen day after day. I felt absolutely miserable thinking about all these things that I heard in the news and there is nothing I can do.
All I can do is make music – and in my sadness I wanted to play something uplifting. The melody of Compass came straight to my head, it’s one of my favourite Two Steps From Hell tracks and I find it comforting. You may or may not have heard about all of these things in the news, but if you have felt distressed from these kinds of things, I only hope that I can maybe bring some light and joy to you with my music. I know that it makes me feel a little better, so if just one person could feel better from this, I am very happy.
A big thank you to my Patreon patrons for supporting me! You guys rock.
