Dan Deacon has just released his new track “Change Your Life”. Deacon originally wrote the song for Adult Swim’s Off The Air. This is Deacon’s first video release since last year’s “When I Was Done Dying“.
Of the new song, Deacon stated
“Sometime in late 2015 a good friend and long time collaborator, Dave Hughes, asked me to write a new song for the New Year’s Eve episode of his show ‘Off The Air.’ The theme for the show was ‘NEWNOW’ and it couldn’t have come at a better time for me as I was going through some pretty heavy shit at the time and was very depressed, confused and alone. The theme helped me realize I was in a transitional phase of my life and to try to pull myself together and remove the aspects of life that I was in conflict with. Writing the song became an opportunity to motivate myself to change myself. After I started writing the synth parts I realized I wanted the vocals to also be all synthetic and for the lyrics to be a series of simple but empowering mantras to motivate.”
