A few weeks ago, during the Super Worm Moon phenomenon, a back-and-forth in casual conversation presented itself as a possible song lyric.
Even as I was improvising a quick melody into my iPhone, I was asking myself, “Am I really writing yet another song about the moon?”
So: How to Write ‘Another Song About the Moon’ is a new, short film about building a song from scratch, starting with only a click and a quasi-improvised vocal track.
It condenses 4 hours of fly-on-the-wall studio footage down to about 4 minutes, immediately followed by the official music video.
J. Eric Smith wrote some beautiful words about the song.
“Laughing and crying, you know it’s the same release.” – Joni Mitchell.
