So much talk about fake news, so few anthems for fake news TV shows. I decided to remedy that with this week’s 52 Sellout!
Growing up it seemed like every news theme had timpani, xylophones clanking in the background, and regal sounding horns, so that’s what I went with here. I enjoyed working on the instrumentation and trying to make the music sound authoritarian and inspiring at the same time.
I also had a lot of fun working on the visuals, especially writing the headlines for the quick cuts of the anchorman reading stories. I hope you like it!
And stay tuned for the story after the woosh, it’s about how my new album A/B is #1 and is dominating the music biz (hey, if it’s fake news I may as well make the stories work for me!).
