What’s so special about this day you ask? Well, I will tell you…
On this very special day in August I am finally able to share a new love of mine with the rest of the world. A love that I’ve been forced to keep to myself because it involves music that’s not actually out in stores yet, and it would have been pretty bad for me to put it out there. These are songs that have hogged my music player for the past month, and still echo against the walls of my mind on a regular basis even after the iPod is turned off. I mean, I literally will find myself bursting into song with these tunes out of nowhere- they really seem to enjoy camping out in my head. Lucky for me and everyone else around (except my husband) I’m able to refrain from doing so in public.
As you may have picked up on before, I am a big fan of The Afters new album- it’s pretty stinking good if you ask me, and now you guys get to experience the awesomeness for yourselves.
The band is previewing songs off the new record this week on their site, and they kicked it off with one of my favorite tracks on the album. The song is called “Start Over” and it definitely has the highest repeat count on my iPod out of every song on there. Maybe it has a subliminal message hidden in it that makes you want to ‘Start Over’ again after every listen?…Or maybe it’s just really really good.
The beauty of grace and redemption is that we never have to be weighed down by what’s in the past. Everyday is a new opportunity to live with meaning and be the person we were made to be. –The Afters
