Singled Out: King Louie's Missing Monuments
OK Fans and Onlookers to this new single from my band the Missing Monuments, "The Girl Of The Nite." First off , there has been a question of "WHO" is singing ... YUP that's me! The old Cookie Monster! I felt it was time to redirect vocally and lyricly from super catchy POP with darker lyrical content before it was deemed my FORTE'! Oops too late for that now, I guess!!! The song is sung completely different than a lot of my other stuff! I did it on purpose. I wanted the vocals to reflect the change lyricly I was making with this. HAVING SOME FUN AND JUST A SWEET TIME FOR A GODDAMN CHANGE! I also thought it was important to put this into the spotlight and open the record with it...
The song is about a girl that I'm super great friends with named Tess and a dance that we once shared during a love song on a jukebox at a New Orleans bus-stop drop dive! It was a magical B-side that is forever seered into my thoughts! The song really just wrote itself.
YES this is a SOMEWHAT classic style pop sound! Which I'm SURE will be deemed a bit retro. UNLIKE IF I MADE 1973 METERS RECORD AND RAPPED OVER IT, I would be taking it to the next level???
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you stream the full album right here!
