Singled Out: MarsupiaL

(antiMusic) Welcome to Singled Out! where we ask artists to tell us the inside story of their latest single. Today Jam Band/prog-rockers MarsupiaL tell us about "The Man Who Knows Things" from their brand new album "Genus Thylacinus". Here is the story they sent over:

This song was written by guitarist / vocalist, Ian Reardon, in 1998 as part of Ian's former band, Wherever It Goes, concept album "The Green Monkey Fugue". Reardon explains, "The song is a reference to speaking to God, or listening to your inner voice, and following your destiny. It's the realization that everything is fine and there is no reason to worry. Life is unfolding as it is meant to be."

As a student at Appalachian Sate University, bassist Brad Mehder would go see Reardon's band perform at local venues in Boone, NC. "I was a big fan of this song the first time I heard it performed", says Mehder. "To me, this songs was the perfec t example of Ian's ability to take a simple song, and add that magic touch that transforms the song in to a great song". For MarsupiaL, this is an example of a song that was frequently talked about being recorded and performed. However, it took another eight years for MarsupiaL to add this song to their repertoire.
