Twin Shadow has hit back with a new song called “To The Top.” It’s a 80s power-ballad of sorts, something that would have been a pretty appropriate fit on the Donnie Darko soundtrack. It’s a major tune, getting more and more powerful with ever listen.
He recorded the song with Wynne Bennet at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetary & Studio Zapata Zabala. The song came with the following message from George Lewis Jr. (Twin Shadow) himself:
What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.
It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.
Enjoy it below.
