Patti Smith returns to help conclude the Adult Swim series Aqua Teen Hunger Force after a thirteen season run. According to Spin, Patti Smith wrote an ” eerie original song/elegy” as commissioned by the show. The musician was not limited to music, as Patti Smith was known for fusing poetry within her music to create some really unique art. “Aqua Teen Dream” consists of some melancholic piano and Patti Smith’s iconic vocals that are sure to not disappoint.
As an essential member of the punk rock movement with her album Horses in 1975, Patti Smith has always been known as a game changer in music. Whether it’s taking her material to the next level with punk poetry to co writing with Bruce Springsteen, everything has creativity and soul oozing out from it. This is pretty clear in the song “Aqua Teen Dream”, as the emotion and eerieness behind the song is very prominent and a huge focal point of the track.
Lyrics within the song are highly focused on Aqua Teen Hunger Force’s series conclusion, with lyrics such as “I never dreamed / I’d be an Aqua Teen / Thirteen seasons / What did it mean?”. More recently, Patti Smith has been critically acclaimed for her memoir “Just Kids”. It has been announced that it will be getting a Showtime series earlier this month, so we definitely have that to look forward to.
