Singled Out: Hudson Hank's Breakfast of Fools

Today Sam Oatts from Hudson Hank tells us about the song "Breakfast of Fools" from their brand new album "DayBreak," which was produced by Coldplay's bassist Guy Berryman. Here is the story:

"Breakfast of Fools" was actually the first tune written for our debut album, DayBreak. Needless to say, it's had more than a few iterations; vocal rewrites, switching verses around, playing with sounds, etc...

At first, our producer (Guy Berryman) didn't think it was going to fit the record's overall sound, but after adding a horn intro and chorale to the beginning and adding some more counter melodies in the back end, the track really came alive.

Like many first efforts, this is probably the most honest and heartfelt tunes on the album. "Breakfast of Fools," the only synth driven song on the record, is about losing innocence and purity while gaining worldly perspective.

It begins with the somber prelude and continues with a feeling of progress, coming to understand the hardships of love and life. It's a very meaningful tune to us.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about Hudson Hank right here!
