The Dears frontman Murray A. Lightburn has just premiered “Fan Fiction (Ballad Of A Genius)” off of his forthcoming sophomore solo album, Hear Me Out, which is set for release on Friday.
The smooth, bouncy track has a jazzy vibe to it with Lightburn’s crooning vocal and echoing guitar chords as he sings honest, reflective lyrics like, “Everyone wants something. That’s probably why I’ve got no friends.” “This album is about grown-up stuff,” Murray explains in a statement. “Having kids, having to sustain careers and sustain relationships, finding that thing that keeps you together in the midst of other circumstances that could tear you apart.”
Listen to “Fan Fiction (Ballad Of A Genius)” below.
Catch Murray A. Lightburn at The Burdock on February 28th.
