Singled Out: Annie Automatic's Burn This Prison
"Burn This Prison" started as a fun little groove we put together, and it just hit. We recorded most of it at Conway Studios here in Hollywood, and all the vocals I did in our private space in Downtown, Ladybug Sound.
I wrote about a fictional, figurative story - an innocent man is doing 10 years of time, for a crime he didn't commit. He tells the listener what it's like to spend "Day In and Day Out" in a cell block, and goes on to tell us that he's had it - he's planning his escape.
In his last torturous attempt for his own Justice, he's going to set fire to the prison and break free, so he can get back home to the girl he loves.
While it's a fictional story, I think we all can relate to being locked into a prison, whether it's a prison of society and it's ideals, or one of our own fear an insecurities, and I'd say it's time we Break Free.
"Burn This Prison" is now available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon and Napster. The album, Don't Look Down, will be released on August 23, 2011.
