When I get an incoming voice call from someone I know, I assume it’s terrible news, so I wrote a song about it! I explore the terror and the myriad horrible scenarios that run through my head as the phone vibrates with an incoming voice call.
To capture the drama musically I had to create a dramatic arrangement, and musically I think this is one of my best songs on the album. I feel the melody and chord changes build the story, and the full arrangement—including horns, strings, and more—add to the drama and tension.
Someday when I have the budget I’ll shoot a video in the style of an action thriller. If you’d like to help out and get an Executive Producer credit I think we could probably do it for just a few million. Lemme know!
