"Factory Floor" is a powerful and gut-wrenching song about the impact on ordinary workers of both the global recession and outsourcing.

Britain’s Daniel Pearson drew wide praise in the UK for his debut, Satellites, being hailed as ““Britain’s best new singer-songwriter” by Allgigs, while Uncut celebrated the album as ““Route 66 meets the M1… bittersweet and contemplative”. Now this fine new talent has a new album on tap, Mercury State, set to release a year from his debut.
“Factory Floor” is the first single and it’s a powerful and gut-wrenching song addressing the plight of unemployed factory workers who have been robbed of their youth doing back-busting work and who now must face chronic unemployment. The visuals address it from the UK labor perspective, but this could be anywhere in the world and resonates equally for white- and blue-collar workers. Timely and important music.
