Singled Out: 3 Pill Morning's I Want That for You

Today 3 Pill Morning frontman Jeff Stebbins tells us about their latest single "I Want That for You," from their debut studio album "Black Tie Love Affair". Here is the story:

The writing process was pretty crazy and fast for "I Want That for You." We had blocked out some time in Oklahoma City to work on some song ideas at Hinder's studio working with Marshall Dutton. For this particular song we had an energy and a live feel in mind and built a groove and drum beat around this concept. We sped it up, we slowed it down, we tried all kinds of things until the beat "felt" right…we wanted a song to make people want to move. Once we were happy with that and could visualize it, the guitar riff made that song come to life. I was listening to the chorus riff over and over and then almost with some type of subconscious song idea in mind I started singing in falsetto the lyrics and melody of the chorus. To actually sing the part, it was right at the top of my register and the second the guys heard it they threw me into the booth and said sing it…now!

We belted out the chorus for a couple hours and built the melody further and locked down some really cool lyrics in the process. The lyrical topic is a story we'd all wanted to tell in some way. Things happen in life where you hit that crossroad and people need to move on in their own direction. Not every break-up or life decision needs to end in tragedy, sometimes you realize you're just holding each other back and it's time for you both to find happiness elsewhere. It takes a strong person to go through with it and far too often we're scared to go after the things in life that truly make us happy. I think it hits home for everyone in some way.

We knew we had something special once the chorus was put together and we continued to build the song around that. From there it seemed like the ideas were just flowing, alternate vocal parts, additional guitar parts, the breakdown, it all just came together quickly. We actually went to rehearse it before our next tour and realized the speed still wasn't quite right for the live feel we wanted, so we adjusted a few BPM again and got to what the final recorded version is you hear today.

We try to write songs for the live show, some people write for the studio, but we want to make sure the song and story translate to the live show. We're excited about where it ended up and the response the song has received both live and on the radio. It's cool to watch that all come together.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album and grab their tour dates this summer with Trapt, as well as an extensive run with Hollywood Undead, Escape The Fate right here!
