Untitled - New Track

I just finished a second track for my new album, hot on the heels of "Who's Rustling in my Woods?" That one is a cartoon, so I thought I'd even things out a little by posting a sincere followup. Although "Untitled" will ultimately have more impact as a late-album closer, I think it stands up well on its own for the time being.

I wrote this one a long time ago; I assumed at some point a title would suggest itself, but nothing ever seemed to fit. It's been around so long a new name would make it feel foreign, and thematically I suppose lacking one is appropriate. Lyrically it's one of the songs I'm most proud of, and I hope you think the arrangement suits. Without further ado, here is:

  1. I wanted to listen and have the perfect title pop into my head for you, but it didn't happen. The best I could come up with was "Song for Robbie Even Though I Don't Know Anybody Named Robbie" other words, you don't want my input re: song titles.

    Liked the song, and it does sound like a perfect album closer, right down to the bit of ambience at the end. Strong lyrics, ones that really hit me as a directionless and disappointed middle-aged guy. Yeah, you're probably right--"Untitled" does feel appropriate.
