New Drum is a somewhat ambitious song as it pushed my pretty far out of my comfort zone as a producer I really had to grow some new skills. It is an activist alt pop \ alt dance track with synths and beats galore, with an important message at its core.

New Drum

You got something to say

But your battling this new age

Look around you can hear them calling someone else’s name

You might think that time has past

But there’s wisdom in the lines you laugh

You thought this wasn’t your game

 

But the world won’t sleep

The starving eat in your dreams

And there’s access to all we need

But the wealth it is shared out wrong

And what’s the use of a song

But its the only move I can make

Watch as I play

Sing along to the melody of this move I make

Watch it decay

We’ll dance to the beat of a new drum

Of a new drum

Of a new drum

Of a new drum

Of a new drum

 

So what’s the use of the judge when the jury’s out in session

When the opinion of the one is enough to break

They said sticks and stones can only break your bones

But it’s the names we just can’t shake

 

But the world won’t sleep

The starving eat in your dreams

And there’s access to all we need

But the wealth it is shared out wrong

And what’s the use of a song

But its the only move I can make

Watch as I play

Sing along to the melody of this move I make

Watch it decay

We’ll dance to the beat of a new drum

Watch as I play

Sing along to the melody of this move I make

Watch it decay

We’ll dance to the beat of a new drum

Of a new drum

Of a new drum

Of a new drum

Of a new drum

So do all you can do 

To make someones life better

Even the smallest mistake can throw a life in the gutter

Don’t build towers for your own name

Turn and help your own neighbour

Because kindness can change more than you’d ever know

 

So do all you can do
