The prog rock guitarist joins forces with Living Colour's Corey Glover on this dreamy new epic track.
Progressive rock guitarist and composer Jane Getter is preparing to release her new album On this fall, a lavish record featuring not only her own formidable talents but collaborations with a host of acclaimed musicians from the jazz and rock world. Among her collaborators is Living Colour singer Corey Glover, who turns in a superb vocal performance on the dreamy eight-minute composition "Surprised".
"'Surprised' is based on the opening picking riff," Getter tells PopMatters. "I came up with it one day when I was practicing and the song took off from there. Being a long-time fan of Living Colour, it was a real treat to have Corey Glover sing on this song (and the album!). His voice is the perfect combination of rock, R&B and gospel, and he brings the intensity and soulfulness to the song that I was hoping for.
"The lyrics came from my frustration and astonishment at how toxic the political arena is right now. I continue to be 'surprised' and amazed at how hypocritical and self-serving some politicians are."
On will be released 2 October on Madfish, and can be pre-ordered here.
