First single: REALLY REALLY LIGHT

AC N0EWMAN: “Part of my process throughout the years has been messing with
things I never finished. I really liked Dan’s chorus, and for a while I was just trying to
write something that I felt like belonged with it. I was thinking of the Aloe Blacc song
“The Man” which interpolated the chorus from Elton John’s “Your Song” and thought it
would be fun to interpolate a song that no one knows. Not trying to sound like Aloe Blacc,
just doing some interpolating of my own. It became a game of writing a verse that felt like
a part of the same song. In my mind, I was striving for a little Jeff Lynne–era Tom Petty,
a classic go-to.”

Really really breezy, airy and light.
