The last time I was in a recording studio was April, 2013. I have written dozens of songs since then but have only recorded rough demos of them, until now.
For my first studio recording in seven years I chose one of my most recent songs, written just as the pandemic hit. Recording studios are not considered essential services so this song had to be done remotely. The drummer Chris DeRosa laid down his part and the rest of the tracks were layered on top of that foundation.
From my forthcoming album, this song is called Bad.
I know it’s bad, baby
Baby, I know it’s bad
I mean no harm but I know
People who mean no harm sometimes cause the most
I got it bad, baby
Baby, I got it bad
And there’s no cure for it
Now that this absence has found a presence in me
I need it bad, baby
Baby, I need it bad
‘Cause it’s been so long
Since we went to that place where all the dreams come from
