Singled Out: Scott McKeon
Trouble is the title track of the album. I really wanted to try and capture a Beatles-esque feel to the drums and bass and a lot of those tom fills are very Ringo inspired. In the bridge, at the end of the solo, that was definitely a nod to The Beatles too, with the little keys part in the background.
Lyrically speaking, it was really born out of the frustration of being used by someone and being let down....whether that be a friend, a girlfriend or whoever. It's about standing up for yourself and not settling on being the victim. Not that I had thought about it in too much of a planned way, but I always wanted to write a pop song with a big chorus that also had a big guitar solo too. Something you could hear on the radio without it being cheesy or selling out.
I'm really happy with how the song came out. It set a tone for the album and the message of the song is something I connect with each time I play it.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album - right here!
