As many of us kick 2016 to the kerb and look forward to a more positive New Year, Sage Francis’ lyrics from ‘Dead Man’s Float’ take on a new relevance.
Taken from his 2014 album ‘Copper Gone‘ Strange Famous Records have released a video for the track ‘Dead Man’s Float’ from Sage Francis.
“We’ve thrown the term around before, but 2016 was a real hell of a year. We don’t know a soul who wasn’t touched in some terrible, tangible way by the last 12 dark months.
There were bright moments as well, and for us, much of that light was cast by our Strange Famous crew and family of supporters. To each and every one of you, we say thank you, and much love.
To mark the end of this turn around the sun, we’ve decided to release a new video: Sage Francis’ “Dead Man’s Float” (produced by Cecil Otter, from Sage’s 2014 “Copper Gone” LP), directed by David Karcic.
Given what we’ve all just lived through, we thought the lyrics were particularly appropriate. And so, to 2016 we say:
Go away. Disappear. Be extinct.”
