On August 19th, Rockford IL band The Color Morale will be releasing their fifth album, Desolate Divine. Today, they released “Lonesome Soul,” the song that kicks off the album, You can pre-order the album here and get it as an instant-grat track. We reached out to singer Garret Rapp to ask him about the meaning behind the song, and he responded:
This song is an expression of “satisfactory” life. It was written as an representation of stagnancy where we feel like were just floating through life. This is the opening track of DD, and kind of sums up a thesis of the record as well. This is the middle ground where we live in fear of feeling like we belong alone, either as a result of lack of self acceptance, or from pain inflicted in our past. Its also written for those that are just swallowed by the same routines of life. “This is the end of what we used to know, i’m breathing just fine but am I alive, i’m living safe as a lonesome soul, but i’m dying to feel so much less alone.” After the party is over, the drugs are gone, the temporary people return to temporary agendas, what do we have left?
Desolate Divine will be released on August 19th on Fearless Records and can be pre-ordered here.
