Robert Wynia has released the track "Always Laughing" featuring Peter Cornett on Bandcamp. As listed on the song page "Written just after the creation of Floater's album "Wake" and featuring a rare recording of drummer Peter Cornett on classical guitar, this song never found a home on later Floater or Robert Wynia albums. As a tribute to the late Cornett's musicianship, it is offered here as a single for your listening pleasure."
Founding member and original drummer Peter Cornett passed away on November 20th, 2021 at his home in Eugene, OR. Peter was 53 years old.
