Listen: Twin Shadow’s new single “To The Top”

It’s a shame George Lewis Jr., aka Twin Shadow, wasn’t making music back in 1987. He would’ve been a prime candidate to score a theme song for Sly Stallone’s classic arm wrestling vehicle, Over the Top. At least that’s what one might gather upon listening to his latest single, “To the Top”.

After slumming it in Austin dumpsters, Twin Shadow returns with just the right anthem to bring him… back to the top, as the title and chorus suggests. And similar to anything off 2010’s Forget or 2012’s Confess, “To the Top” sounds straight out of ’80s FM radio, as Lewis matches his vocals with Foreigner’s Mick Jones and revisits just about every ’80s action ballad shipped to screen.

That’s just our take. Here’s his:

What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.

It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.”

Throw on some shorts, grease up those pecks, and hit the road below.

The song was recording in Los Angeles at Hollywood Forever Cemetery & Studio Zapata Zabala with longtime Twin Shadow musical cohort Wynne Bennet. According to a press release, Lewis is currently working on a new full-length studio album.

Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get
advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Although some people may complain about how they do not have time to exercise,
it is actually simpler than they may think. Thus, even if you’re not on the treadmill anymore, your body continues to burn calories like crazy, making you lose fat even when you’re talking or lazing
around. Even if you are leasing and don’t own the building,
your business still has property.

By using contrast, you are not only highlighting one but two focal points, which will draw the eye into the photo. However, asking a person with a dog (or a bird, cat or pot-bellied pig, or a python, etc. In this article, we will also discuss about maternity photographer and how this type of photographer is found in clicking the best shot of the pregnant lady.
