It’s been a while since there’s been anything newsworthy, but I think this just about warrants it. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working with Ian Brough, (a British singer and lyricist living in Dubai,) on some new tracks based around the book The Stand, by Stephen King. Initially, it was just going to be a track or two, but, as these things normally do, things developed, and we have ideas for more songs based around the story. Musically, a lot of it is already done, but as a teaser, we’ve decided to release one of the tracks “into the wild.” For those unfamiliar with the story, it’s about a man-made disease (Captain Trips) that escapes from a lab, and wipes out 99% of the human population. The story follows how, from the survivors, two sides form, guided to their locations by dreams. The good guys to the East, and The Baddies to the West, in preparation for the final battle, as it were.
Anyway, here’s a track from early on in the project. This is Captain Trips. Enjoy! (The links plays the file. If you want to download it, just right click on the link, and select “Save Link As…”
