David Duchovny’s new single “Half Life,” which is taken from his sophomore album Every Third Thought, has debuted on Soundcloud.
“How can half of everything, feel like less than nothing,” is one of the memorable lyrics featured in the catchy track (Duchovny’s music has a refreshing Tom Petty vibe) which deals with someone dealing with being at the crossroads of a relationship.
The actor isn’t a lifelong musician, as he picked up a guitar just several years ago and was inspired to write a few songs.
“I feel like this album presents a real growth lyrically and musically from the first and I can’t wait to get it out there,” said Duchovny whose TV work includesThe X-Files, Californication and Aquarius.
“Every Third Thought” hits streaming and digitally February 9th with a CD and vinyl release to be announced soon. Check out “Half Life” below and tell us what you think!
The Voice winner Chris Blue continues his passionate attention to his craft, as the singer is currently working on his upcoming studio album. Personal songs such as “Blue Blood Blues,” a heartbreaking and compelling tune that was inspired by a previous relationships, are a testament to Blue’s decision not to go the creatively safe route with the project. Part of Blue’s success, along with having a collaborator like Alicia Keysby his side, comes from appreciating his own roots.
“Whitney Houston started in the church, one of the greatest singers of our time,” said Blue, who won season 12 of The Voice. “Marvin Gaye was a church guy. Al Green was a church. There’s a lot of talented artists that started in church that we don’t know started in church. And I’m one of those guys and I’m proud of that. It’s who I am.”
