In the summer of 2003, Tim Arnold flew to Thamkrabok Monastery in Thailand to undergo a physical and spiritual detox. Within a matter of days, Buddhist monks had begun to teach him new ways of making music by using patterns in nature.

The monks set about building Arnold a studio and gave him a second home so that could work on his music. The result was 'Lokutara'.

The album was recorded entirely in the monastery. Tracks like 'Give Some Understanding' include an ensemble of over 100 monks singing the chorus to Arnold's rock anthem of compassion. It was produced by Tristin Norwell (Embrace, Talvin Singh, Neneh Cherry). Originally released in 2004 on Norwell and Arnold's label 'Sajja Records', the album's only single 'Walking Through Walls' received considerable airplay in the UK. There was much press coverage about the record and the extraordinary circumstances of its creation, but mainly it heralded the start of Arnold's career as a solo artist.
