Happy new music Friday and it's good to hear from our friends Sir Sly! They're back with their new song "Material Boy", the first from the new album that's coming in 2021.
This song is a very personal one for their singer Landon Jacobs. About "Material Boy", he said, "“When I lost my faith at 22, I figured it was the end of any kind of spiritual life for me. I now believe spirituality to simply be a process of becoming comfortable with unknowing. There are so many things in life that are out of my control, and the less I try to control situations the more happiness I experience. I wrote the lyrics to “Material Boy” about feeling free to explore spirituality outside of the bounds of my childhood faith. I stopped drinking 2 years ago, and this song is about how I’ve learned to cope with life without the familiar escape of getting drunk. It’s a song to dance to, and I hope it can give others a sense of relief the way it has for me.”
