Clever and intuitive artistry. A compelling journey accompanied by a introspective soundtrack. A must see film within today’s releases.
This week in 1973 Bruce Springsteen released his debut album ‘Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.’ The album was recorded in a single week and sold about 25,000 copies in the first year of it’s release. Both ‘Blinded By The Light” and ‘Spirit In The Night’ were released as singles but neither made a dent in the charts. That came later.
“Getting an audience is hard. Sustaining an audience is hard. It demands a consistency of thought, of purpose, and of action over a long period of time.” – Bruce
Still at it to this very day, I don’t know anyone who has been as committed in this business to love, honor and protect their body of work as he has.
When hard work meets opportunity you find success – throw a little destiny in there and you have music history.
The overall message behind Future Love is the idea that we all live, love, learn, fuck up and live again. As long as we all strive to be the best version of ourselves as possible, then we’re doing it right. There’s become this culture of viciously attacking people online after they’ve been caught doing something illegal or immoral. As if society has taken it upon themselves to become the moral police or something. It’s like, no shit, we all make mistakes, it’s part of life and the people feeling the need to anonymously slander a stranger on twitter for getting caught doing cocaine at a baseball game or something, need to get over themselves and worry about their own shit. Our mentality is…fuck it, we’ve smoked it, we’ve drank it, we’ve stolen some shit and we’ve hurt some feelings and we’ve learned a lot in the process. Stop judging other people for living their lives and focus on your own.
