morning babble / Friday 06-17-22
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
I just have to say Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi – I love it. Love it. Our family watched the most recent episode last night on Disney+.

New Music Friday:
- Beyoncé – she is back. No new song today, but something’s coming soon. It’s been announced that her next NEW album will be called Renaissance and is out July 29th. We’re going to receive 16 magical tracks with this record, which is also being subtitled as “Act I.”
- Last night, Drake’s seventh studio album titled Honestly, Nevermind dropped. Nearly an hour of new music within 14 songs. It’s Drake’s follow-up to last year’s Certified Lover Boy. The song being pushed is “Falling Back” and, of course, it has a video. Released around midnight and it already has like a 1/2 million views. It’s also a long video with acting. So, if you’re into Drake . . . you can go get your Drake on.
- Santigold has announced her first studio album in like 6 years. Arriving on September 9th is Spirituals – the follow-up to 2016’s 99¢. It’s being released by her own record company – called Little Jerk Records. We already got the one song “High Priestess” but today we get the new song “Ain’t Ready” – there’s a video too! Here’s the link.
- There’s a Lana Del Rey cover of Father John Misty’s song: “Buddy’s Rendezvous” and it’s very well done. The cover is included as a 7″ record within a deluxe box set edition of Father John Misty’s new album Chloë and the Next Century. Nevertheless – the cover has now been digitally released. Hear the cover, which is sung predominantly by Del Rey but does have some backing vocals from Misty, below. Father John Misty has also released the “Buddy’s Rendezvous” music video – click here for that.
- A wonderful, chill sounding album out now from Tone Marrow. The other day he released it onto the world wide web for all to hear his album: Barrens. Now, I talk about books a lot and my home’s house library. That’s where my record player is. I love sitting in my chair and following along to the lyrics of songs. Other times, I enjoy reading and just hearing in the background music and that’s what this just is. All music. Reminds me of a playlist I found on YouTube from Lofi Girl. In fact, when I was looking for it and then found it. That is what I thought I was listening to for a bit, but it was still the Barrens album playing on Spotify in the background. Go check out Tone’s new album.
