morning babble / Friday 12-02-22
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 did all the things – I wrote last night / I ran this morning / 3-Day Fast begins Monday night
30 days until EXIT PLAN
New Music Friday:
I put together a Spotify playlist of the songs that I talked about and thought about today for New Music Friday. Click here for that!
- “Lux Aeterna” is a Latin phrase that means ‘eternal light’ while also being a hymn chanted by Catholics in honor of the dead. And today, it’s a Metallica song as well. (play clip). Metallica have returned with their first new song in more than six years and , “Lux Æterna” — the lead single from the band’s just announced new studio album, 72 Seasons, arriving April 14th. Their tour dates kick off in Europe the same month, before a string of North American shows later in the year.
- Nas and 21 Savage have shared a new song called “One Mic, One Gun.” Which is interesting because it comes two weeks after 21 Savage dismissed Nas as being “irrelevant.” Both rappers are promoting new albums that were released last month in November. 21 Savage shared Her Loss, his collaborative album with Drake / and Nas dropped Kings Disease III
- Kenny Wayne Shepherd did a complete re-record of his most successful album – Trouble Is and he called it: Trouble Is . . . 25 – because it is. Top to bottom – all reinterpreted and redone. BUT – we also get a new song “Ballad of a Thin Man.” Alright, it’s a new song for Kenny. I know it’s Bob Dylan song. There’s another one on that album – “Everything’s Broken.” In fact, the first time around, Shepherd’s producer wanted him to include the “Thin Man” song, Kenny did not. He wanted “Everything’s Broken.” Both were recorded back in 1997 but “Thin Man” was cut and never released. We got it today though (play clip)
- Metro Boomin has released his 2nd full length album which is called Heroes and Villains. There are 15 tracks and they are packed with stars: Future, 21 Savage, Chris Brown, John Legend, Travis Scott and more. The song Spotify appeared to be pushing was the one featuring Future and 21 Savage called “Creepin'” (play clip)
