‘Cold Spell’ is the first single from RF Shannon’s new upcoming album ‘Trickster Blues’. “Let’s walk on this cold and desolate highway of time and place. It’s jagged and its isolated. There’s much to walk, there’s much to endure. The setting Sun, envelopes the hopes and dreams of the falsehoods. My heels of my boots are coming off.”
New album ‘Trickster Blues’ drops May 4, 2018.
Roughing it up in this raggedy town, was an insult.
I wanted you, like I’d never wanted anyone before.
My tendons tightened, my heart jumped, it still jumps thinking of you.
Pretending the obvious, denying the precious energies I exuded.
Come here to me, in dark shadows – or nought.
Let’s start again, let’s move forward together.
“The process was a drastic shift from the one we took with ‘Jaguar Palace’ and I was hooked. It was a blast all of the time. We kept a quick pace due to external circumstances via random or otherwise inevitable interruptions, so we learned to take what we could get. If a take was good, it was a keeper, we didn’t second guess it. In just four days we had demoed the majority of my new material and it just felt so right.’’ explains Shane Renfro, the mind behind RF Shannon.
The final product of the seize the moment approach behind the writing and recording process echoes the themes Trickster Blues attempts to dissect.
“The lyrics are about acknowledging consequences and saying “so what”, the reward is worth the risk, etc. Its about feeling a pull, a calling, and dedicating to it hell or high water, whatever that may be. Its the heart of it all.”
Kudos Shane. Kudos.
