Hey, how are you?
There’s been a great response to the music I wrote and recorded in a recent Time Warner commercial. Here’s the video link! I’ve been convinced by the hugely positive reaction to do a full-length version of the song…
At first, I was concerned that doing a full-length version of the song would ultimately be incapable of living up to people’s expectations. It’s already on a pedestal. Often, it’s wise to remember if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
On playing around with arrangement ideas, however, I really got into it. Melodies and lyrics just jumped out at me, and it’s been a very creative, natural process. I’m working with a great producer on the single track, and so far it sounds great. We’re looking to finish the track by the first week of October, when it will be available on iTunes and Spotify and everywhere else.
It’s going to be a solid tune when it’s done! Think Ben Folds meets Brian Wilson meets…Darwin Deez?
And in the meantime – any Chris Merritt fans have any similar track ideas for recent converts? Here’s a link to the spot – leave song ideas in the comments! “Quinn”? “Show Me What You’re Made Of”? What else? (Links encouraged!)
