Little Big Pete

In bowling, if you get three strikes in a row, it's called a turkey. If you get eight in a row, it's called a Little Big Pete. I actually just learned that myself. Thanks, internet. 

I mention all of this because back in March, I wrote a song called The Regular. It just kind of came to me from out of the blue. I couldn't get it out of my head, so I recorded it. Since then, I've been on some kind of weird songwriting binge. 

As of today, I now have eight new, unreleased songs. They are all works-in-progress, to be included on my forthcoming album, which is now looking like it might materialize yet this summer. That's kind of crazy, considering that I just released a new full-length album in January. For all intents and purposes, though, I don't really decide these things. When the muse calls, I just pick up an instrument.

Here's the one that I wrote today:

This song is about seeing beyond the ideologies that we subscribe to for the sake of expanding our own perception. I'm sure I'll re-record most of it, but for now, I'm happy with it, especially considering that when I woke up this morning, nothing about this song even existed. In fact, I thought I was going to be spending the day working on the song that I wrote and recorded yesterday. 

I don't know where this is all coming from, but I'm thankful to be able to share it with you. Meanwhile, Original Miles continues to be streamed and shared, hitting numbers on Spotify that I've never seen before. Well, not in that context, anyway.

I hope you enjoy my songs. Thanks for listening.
