Here’s some brand new music to kick off the weekend!
If you’re like me and you’ve been kinda bummer since The So So Glos hit the “PAUSE” button on their career after their last album (the obscenely stellar Kamikaze), this should get you fired up. SSG lead vocalist/songwriter/bass player Alex Zarou Levine, has not only been working on his debut solo album, but it’s ready for release later this year!
Written and recorded under the moniker Alexander Orange Drink – a reference to the medication he’s had to take since birth to combat the rare and life-threatening disorder Homocystinuria – Levine’s eight-song Babel On is due out September 28th. It was written in the period of time after the So So Glos went on hiatus and, simultaneously, their home venue, Shea Stadium, was forced to shutter for the last time. To whet your appetite for what’s coming, Babel On‘s lead single, “Normalize,” is now streaming, and in typical So So Glos fashion, it’s fun and different and has a pretty hypnotic groove to it. Check it out below.
You can pre-order and pre-save Babel On through Spotify or iTunes. Stay tuned for more on this one.
